The final players have been signed to the Melbourne Renegades for BBL|05.
The supplementary list for the summer features a host of players in strong form for their respective clubs, allowing for cover in multiple areas if any Renegades on the main list are unavailable.
If any Renegade on the main playing list is ruled out by injury then a supplementary player will be the one which replaces him.
However, a key point is that under BBL rules a replacement player can be selected from any club’s supplementary list.
