Profile

A long-term back injury kept Jason Arnberger on the sidelines for the whole of 2006-07 and led to his omission from Victoria's list of contracted players for the next season. It was a disappointing result for the man who had become a formidable presence at the top of the Victorian order since moving there in 1997-98 to avoid the blocks of Mark Taylor and Michael Slater at New South Wales. An unhurried and calm right-hander, Arnberger became such a valuable member for the Bushrangers that he occupies seventh place on the state's run list with 5504 at 42.01. Three seasons ago his career was threatened by a back problem but he recovered to muster 639 runs and three hundreds and followed up in 2005-06 with 721 at 45.06, a campaign that won him the state's Player of the Year award. The out-ground match against New South Wales in Lismore was the peak as he gathered an unbeaten 239, which followed his 142 against South Australia.
