A GRADE: Wandearah's Matt Thornton was in good form at the weekend with two fours and a six, but it wasn't enough to get Wandies over the line.

Round 7 Preview

A Grade

Wandearah v South Port

Wandearah take on South Port at Globe oval On Sunday afternoon looking to get back into the winners circle.

The top order is a concern at the moment with really only Matt Thornton with 219 runs so far this season performing.  

Patrick McNamara should be available this week boosting the batting and bowling stocks for the Rams.  

Cara Fiebig, Matt O’Shaughnessy and Stevie Athanasos need to lift with the bat.  

The bowling led by Todd Baker and Matt Thornton have been reasonable so far this season.

South Port should have Nathan Hooper and Mitchell Fuss available.  They combined well last time against the Rams and will look to do so again this week.  

Tim Eberhard, Jake Walsh and Flynn Bullen are youngsters that need experience and they will hopefully develop this season.  

Fuss and Hooper are handy with the ball and when you throw together Blair Miller, Ian Eberhard, David Shahzad and Rob Anderson they have a potent bowling line up.

The Rams should win.  The key will be whether South Port can make enough runs or not.

Proprietary v Solomontown-North

The Panthers look unstoppable at the moment and will meet the Cats on Saturday afternoon at Globe Oval.

The bowling for the Panthers has been led by Westley Wyatt who has claimed 14 wickets so far this season.  

There are multiple options for Captain Reece Fowler in himself, Tate Bradley, Randall Wyatt and Terrence Pellegrini.  

Plugger Bessen is batting very well this season and has amassed 216 runs in the first six matches.  Pellegrini was in good form with the bat last week making 36 not out.  

There is plenty of depth with the batting in Tate Bradley, Riley Fowler and Randall Wyatt to name a few.

The Cats need a win to stay in touch with the top two.  They may be without some regulars due to work commitments and if this is the case a lot falls on the shoulders of Ben Brown, Olly Cosmai and Mick Tresize with the bat.  

Dylan Johnson leads the A grade bowling trophy at the moment with 15 wickets.  Ben Brown has grade level experience and it shows every time he bowls.  

Kain Wallace may be selected this week has he has been in good form in the B grade.

I think the Panthers will remain undefeated heading into the combined and test match break.

B Grade

South Port v Port Germein

The Sharks are moving from strength to strength each week and should account for the Pirates this week.  The Sharks have three of the top five run scorers in the B grade in Damien Wauchope, Jeff Twigden and Mick Phillipps.  

Cam Hoare claimed six wickets last week for the Sharks to move his tally to ten for the season.  

South Port have struggle dof late and will require Jordan Gray and Rohan Benson to make runs and Craig Massner to take the wickets.

Risdon v Solomontown-North

This should be another comfortable victory for the Tigers this week.  Nathan Marwick leads the Tigers runs so far with 92.  

There are other players capable in James Congdon, Andrew Haren and Scott Smith that can help them post a big total.  Andrew Thornstensien, Peter Reed and Andrew Haren have been in terrific form with the ball.  

Lee Nash is the only Cat to have passed 100 runs so far this season and will again need to hold the innings together.  Nash will also need to produce with the ball and look for support from Reg Dennis and Blake Davidson.  

Wandearah v Warnertown

The Rams will look for a quick return to form when they clash with the Wombats this weekend.  

The runs will need to come from Luke Davis, Darcy Puddy and Dean Anderson for the Rams.  Rob Jeffries with 13 wickets is second on the B grade bowling list.  

Kashif Shahzad has proved a handful when he plays so hopefully is available this week.  

Dylan Brooks from Warnertown leads the B grade batting at the moment with 135 runs.  There is other firepower in the side in Steve Budd, Matt Taylor and Luke Patterson.  

Matt Taylor leads all comers in the B grade bowling award having taken 16 wickets so far this season.  

Throw in Adam Rontaunay, Dylan Brooks and Luke Patterson and the Wombats go into this match warm favourites.
