Labuschagne was an inspired signing and there is no doubt that his time with us benefitted Glamorgan and Australia. I have heard that he ‘loved’ playing for Glamorgan in Cardiff (like Viv Richards, Jason Gillespie, Dale Steyn to name just a few who loved the warm, Welsh welcome) and is a very moral, upstanding player who wants to return.

If only, my pension would cover it!

Especially if the current coaching regime stays (Langer and S. Waugh seem big on how helpful playing Championship cricket is). If we somehow scrap our way to D1 then I think that'll help us more in being the ones to secure him than any financial package.
