RL Hayes

Roydon Leslie Hayes is one of the more colourful characters to emerge on the NZ 1st class scene in recent years, due mostly to his distinctive near bald hairstyle and the aggressive nature of his approach to the game. A right arm fast medium bowler who is capable of generating geniune pace and bounce. He has been an im- portant part of a Northern Districts squad which has won the Shell Trophy and Shell Cup in recent seasons. Although he has proven to be a player able to compete with distinction at 1st class level, his efforts at international level have been below his best due to a lack of the consistency of line and paticularly length needed at the top level.
