I know he did not pull up trees here over the winter but Dane S seems to be far down the pecking order at Notts at the moment with Joe Clarke now keeping. Wonder would he come home?

Yeah, 3rd choice keeper. Not a great place to be!

Imagine we lost Dane and Ryan Murray and we stuck with Madande (Madandara)

Dane is better off staying there and playing County 2’s for now. Will help him improve a lot more than here and I don’t think he will crack the national team yet. He is only 21. He should give himself time

Is county twos really adequate preparation?
I haven’t seen any evidence county twos makes a player much better.
I guess it adds character though.

County twos :lol: nah bro all you get from that is “character building”

County Two's is tough cricket. One of the big issues is they don't use the first team ground, it's generally a tricky deck. It's not easy. It's obviously not the same intensity as first team, but you're nearly always up against a couple of first team bowlers on an iffy pitch.
