Waugh on Thorpe

Steve Waugh weighs in -- with encomiums, mostly -- on England star Graham Thorpe's projected shift to New South Wales.
Earlier, Angus Fraser in the Independent had not only waxed eloquent on the move and the shock it probably gave the England selectors, but even mapped out Thorpe's future with the Blues.
Against these two stories, there's one on NineMSN, quoting NSW coach Trevor Bayliss as saying sure, Thorpe's coming, but there's no guarantee he will play.
Waugh's article contains the probable explanation of the conundrum -- for the Blues, he says, Thorpe coming over will be insurance for when Australia's national side takes on South Africa, and NSW loses the likes of Clarke and Katich.
