Round 2 Team of the week

Here's the team for round 2....

Rhys Marget: The colossal clubber of balls… Rhys has been intent on punishing the leather so far this season! Back up his whirlwind 60 off 12 odd rocks in round 1 with a hair-raising century that has him still icing his forearms.

Scott Christiansen: Straight back to the top of the order the swashbuckling veteran carved his way to an impressive Nintendo 64 not out chasing down the Monny Hawks below par total.

Gerard Jongen: There’s a whisper getting around that young G-Unit cannot be dismissed this season (until he nears 40…) 2 matches for 2 impressive starts but will need to be taking these starts to the bank in the future to pop his head up again in this illustrious side.

Hayden Morrison: The king of cuss, Dos refuses to be dislodged from the crease when he gets his eye in! That is until he spoons a catch to the opposition. Made a super crisp 55 and was heard texting profanities back to his former skipper after what he described as “an innings for the ages”.

Sam Bakker: No Butcher, but we found a ‘Bakker’ this week who was keen to ‘knead’ the opposition into the ground as he hit a scintillating 32 in the 4th XI run chase. Performed a solid ‘roll’ for the team which included keeping out the good ‘seeds’…. We will leave it at that for now.

Ashley Thompson: Ahhh Thomo! The BFG has announced his comeback in trademark style. No car in the bottom oval carpark is safe when the man with the tree trunk for a stick wields it like a tooth pick. Clubbed an impressive 36 not out off a couple of overs and was at his miserly best with the what seems a golf ball to him in hand taking 3/17 off 7.  

Anthony Jongen: Tearaway quick Nibrohimovich startled the circumspect gators in the 3rd XI blasting his way to a game changing 3/22 off 8 overs. A much improved Nib so far this season with a major wheel balancing over the pre-season paying immediate dividends.

Josh Curnow: Enigmatic Curn stepped into the 3rd XI with a point to prove and terrorised the opposition from the first pill. Bowled with real energy and a thirst for the contest as he hit back hard collecting 3 key wickets in the important win.

Daine Vernon: Looking more sasquatch than man at the moment the 2nd XI skipper managed to manoeuvre his bowling stocks to suit himself and pick up some really cheap wickets towards the end of the innings. Took a couple of sitters which is rare and will be putting his ‘big feet’ up after a nail biting win several days after the match concluded.

Todd Burley: From Bigfoot to Bighead, new recruit and well renowned cash cow Todd threw bills all over a good length as he cashed in taking an impressive 4/11. A fantastic early spell which set up the win for the 1st XI. 

Nikhil de Silva: Back from early retirement the big bash superstar was back bowling in the slot but collected a few poles along the way. A rare sight seeing N. de Silva taking scalps early but hopefully more to come from the favourite de Silva.
