It does make me wonder why Wagg would be offered a contract though, as he ought to be only a bit part player next season.Sounds like TvdG is sorted. Uncertainty about De Lange. Smith will play (if fit) but might be a bit light.
If we don't sign another batsman, then we are looking at a top 7 of maybe:
Not terrible, but Carlson has struggled and Taylor is still unproven. There wouldn't be much competition for places either apart from Joe Cooke, Harry Friend and Douthwaite.
As we ought to be picking 4 front-line seamers in the Championship, we would be light there as well. Hogan, if he does sign a contract, will need to be rested quite a bit so we couldn't really afford any injuries (and that's assuming that De Lange and TvdG can stay - that whole issue is way too complicated for my brain to compute! ).

Guess that means we won`t be in for Nash.
Is Hemphrey`s contract up ? If not he goes into the middle order which in fairness to him is what he was at Queensland and he did make runs there in his first season with us batting with his mate Marnus.

De Lange- I think has a contract for next year but awaiting decision about status
Hogan- if money tight and De Lange cleared to play may be released
Wagg- he has told the BBC that he has been offered a new contract- will wait and see
Hemphrey- May be released
Statement that Lloyd will open seems to remove the need for another opener. Not sure we have a spinner who will take wickets in 4 day cricket but timing of matches seems to negate the need. If De Lange can play and Hogan stays we should have enough seamers. Hopefully Smith will keep fit as he appears to be the quickest after De Lange.
