The franchise league,…”
I took note of Romario Shepherd and Ramon Simmons in particular. I believe these players were chosen as a result of our CPL. Unfortunately these franchises didn’t see anything special in the likes of Raymon Riefer and YANNIC CARIAH who were both chosen by Desmond Haynes for the World Cup at the expense of Shepherd and Ramon Simmons. I wonder who if Sir Desmond Haynes was watching different games than the ones the South African Franchises were looking at. Riefer and Cariah on WC squad ahead of so many better players? Give me a break Haynes. You Simmons and other selectors need to visit a good Ophthalmologist
