Garnett Kruger - Glamorgan break their Kolpak taboo

As widely forecast, Glamorgan have moved to strengthen their fast bowling resources by signing South African paceman Garnett Kruger, the first that they've made under the controversial Kolpak loophole.
Previously with Leicestershire, Kruger won't be classified as an overseas player due to the Republic's trade agreement with the EU.
It's a good, if unspectacular signing. Back in September, he was tonked around the park at Cardiff, but maybe he knew he was coming?

Either way, his signing, together with Gibbs and hopefully Cosgrove, is a sign that money flows a little freer at Sophia Gardens these days.
