Thunder Batter Named Hurricanes Assistant Coach

Ben Rohrer has retired from professional cricket and been named Assistant Coach for the Tasmanian Tigers and the Hobart Hurricanes.


Rohrer played 28 games for Sydney Thunder after arriving from the Melbourne Renegades ahead of BBL|05, scoring 386 runs, in his final game for Thunder he made 48 at Manuka Oval.

"Ben has been an exceptional and loved member of the Sydney Thunder club," said Sydney Thunder General Manager Lee Germon.

"The 28 matches he played only skims the surface of the impact he had on players, staff and fans in our Thunder Nation. He was an outstanding contributor on the field but more importantly his character exemplified the Thunder values. He led by example and always acted in a selfless manner."

"I am pleased to see him enter the world of coaching and have no doubt he will influence very positively the culture and skill level of the Hurricanes.

The 37-year old also captained Thunder for two games at the start of BBL|06, had previously been Cricket Tasmania's Talent Manager.
