Round 8: Wilba's 100th 1st XI Game.
Posted by Ben McLean on Thursday, 8 Jan 2009 at 10:52pm
Welcome back to everyone for part 2 of the season, it's gonna be a ripper with all sides in contention for finals, and probably the strongest 3rd XI since the 2001/02 premiership under Craig Lawrence.
All sides have a 1 dayer begining at 12:45pm, be at your ground by 11:45am, this week marks Adam Wilds 100th game in the 1st XI.  During this time he has bowled 1550 overs, taken 270 wickets @ 15.73 & 2.75 runs per over.  He has made 614 runs with 41 not outs @ 11.81, 37 catches and just 2 run outs.  A great effort thus far Wilba.
Also well done to Jezza, who's been picked in the 1's for the first time this season based on his mountain of scores in the 2's, and he hit 78 in the last 1 day game before christmas.
Obviously the club has one of the biggest days ever at Knox Gardens reserve tomorrow, with the '08 Premiers, Hawthorn Football Club holding a training session & kids clinic & autograph session at the ground from 8.30am.  The weather looks fine and Crazy has purchased 1,000 hotdogs for the bbq, so everything will go off nicely.  Expected crowd is 5,000 people, it will be mayhem, so get the club early and help us setup and beat the traffic.
