Sam Rainbird

Young paceman Sam Rainbird rejoins the Hobart Hurricanes after enjoying a successful debut series in BBL05. The Tasmanian-born bowler has blossomed in the past few years after he was given a State contract three years ago. He made his First Class debut in 2012-13 but came of age in his second season claiming 6-68 in a Sheffield Shield match, taking some big scalps in Tasmania's win over New South Wales. Rainbird also claimed the prestigious Tasmanian Tigers Sheffield Shield Player of the Year Award in 2013-14 and looms as a future international after a string of first-class wickets in 2016.
