Not many people reach two metres before their twentieth birthday. However, one-time AFL prodigy Beau Webster bucks the trend, and has decided to bring not just his height, but his cricketing acumen to the Tasmania Tigers.
The lanky boy from Kingborough has been a member of the Futures squad for the past three seasons, and will be keen to push on for a berth in the first XI sometime soon.
Opening the batting in most of his Tasmanian appearances, Webster has made plenty of starts, but has never gone on with it.
The fact that his highest score in the past three years remains 48 is indicative of his problems in converting his hard work into big totals.
Despite having the body to bowl lightning quick pace, Webster showed in the final two games of 2012 that he is a more than handy off-spinner. In fact, he even picked up a wicket against South Australia with a cheeky caught and bowled.
Once he stops growing, you get the feeling that his batting will improve. His height will be advantageous against short pitched bowling, while his reach will be a massive asset against spinners who like to flight the ball.
