Thunder continue one club approach

Sydney Thunder have revealed the numbers of six of their new players.

Each player at the club has their own number, a unique approach that unites the BBL and WBBL squads.

New WBBL recruit Saskia Horley will wear number 23, previously worn by Jake Doran and former Thunder captain Michael Clarke.

“I’m really excited I got number 23. It’s my birthday date plus so many sporting champions like Shane Warne, LeBron James and David Beckham have worn it,” said Horley.

International signing Joe Root will wear 66, his England one-day number, and young gun Jason Sangha will wear number 32.

Sam Rainbird will wear his former Hobart Hurricanes number 43, while Daniel Sams will take number 60 after wearing number 27 for the Sydney Sixers.

Nathan McAndrew will take number 44, the number he wore when he joined the Thunder squad as a replacement player last season.

There have been no other changes to squad playing numbers for BBL|08 and WBBL|04.
