Weekend Wrap vs. Fremantle

Seniors

For the 2nd game in a row, 3rd Grade saved the Club from the dreaded “Brown Roo”, salvaging the only win vs. Freo.

Player of the Round was undoubtedly the Comeback King Andrew “John Farnham” Slattery whose fighting 81 rescued his team. Honorable mentions to Gagandeep “G Train” Singh (4/4 in 3s), Riley “Holly Riley” Holly (59 in 2s) and Sharad “Sharon” Jessani (5/55 in 4s).

Juniors

Our Juniors shared the spoils with both Fremantle and Bayswater-Morley, with wins to our 17s and 13s sandwiching losses in the 15s & 14s.

Connor “S-Berg” Spangenberg was outstanding in the 15s, scoring 33 with the bat before taking 5/3 with the ball! Sensational stuff.  Honorable mentions to Cody “Brother of Lando” Billington (52 in the 14s) and a cheeky 69* to Tyler “Why do we have so many Connors and Tylers?” Brown in the 13s.

Fantasy Wrap Round 3

There concludes our first double week round. In round three club legend and all around great moustache haver Cameron ‘The Weapons’ MacDonald has taken his first win, thanks to his Fantasy Captain Jack Cattrall providing a cheeky 165 (330) points. I only hope he pays his entry fee before something happens to the bar card with his name on it.

Other news, Lachlan ‘Punjab Frogs XI’ has taken the early lead on the overall tally, with the Brendo ‘Beard with human attached’ close behind. And look at that, Rob Fairchild is in the running again this year, closing out the top 3.

1) The Weapons / Cameron MacDonald – 974

1st Grade Debutant: Stuart Thompson

190. Stuart Thompson

Stuart Thompson has joined the mighty Roos for the 1st half of the 2018-19 season, and made his 1st Grade debut for the Roos on Sat 13th October vs. Claremont-Nedlands.  Stuart made 54 off 56 balls.

 

A man who needs no introduction, Stuart comes to the Roos having represented Ireland in all formats of the game.  His salad is ordinary but his beard is ferocious.

Welcome Stuart!

Weekend Wrap

3rd Grade were the lone winners on a rainy weekend, which saw three games abandoned after Sunday hosing.

WDCC vs. Claremont-Nedlands

1st & 2nd Grade went down fighting, whilst 3rd Grade were treated to a triumphant Slattery-fest.  The 4th Grade fixture will be played in November due to ground shortages.  The 17s and 15s games were called off due to the downpour on Sunday.

WDCC vs. Midland-Guildford

1st Grade was abandoned, and 2nd Grade came agonizingly close to winning their 1st game of the season.
