FORMER Launceston paceman Ryan Lees is one of two new additions to the Hobart Hurricanes list, joining Hobart batsman Beau Webster as a rookie on the Twenty20 franchise's playing roster.
Webster will be the Hurricanes' development rookie and Lees its community rookie.
Both players are rookies for Tasmania.
The duo will have the opportunity to train with the senior Hurricanes squad, but Cricket Tasmania says their main roles will be to form links and build relationships with the Tasmanian Community.
Hobart's first game in this year's Big Bash League will be against the Adelaide Strikers at Bellerive Oval on Sunday, December 22.
