Enthralling Horsham cricket battle looms

An enthralling battle for fourth place on the ladder will unfold as Horsham Cricket Association resumes after the Christmas break.

Noradjuha-Toolondo sits on top of the ladder, a clear leader from Homers. West Wimmera, Rupanyup-Minyip and Jung Tigers are gripped in a battle in the run to the finals.

Rupanyup-Minyip finished the lead-up to the break strongly, beating Homers at Rupanyup, while Jung Tigers staged an upset victory over West Wimmera at Nhill.

Rupanyup-Minyip will have to bring its best game when it takes on Noradjuha-Toolondo at Rupanyup.

The Blue Panthers will look to Jamie Byrne and Daniel Schaper to do the bulk of the scoring against a strong Bullant outfit. Tony Caccaviello and Matt Combe will look to make early inroads to put the Blue Panthers back in their box.

West Wimmera, boasting consistent association run-makers Mitch Dahlenburg and Nathan Alexander, will try to right the ship, but take on second-placed Homers – also hurting from a last-round defeat.

Homers bowlers including spinner Chaminda Gamage, Mohan Bandara and Craig Britten will be keen to get the Westerners big-two out early.

In the last game of the round, winless Horsham Saints will be champing at the bit to register a victory, but Jung Tigers will be cock-a-hoop after their win over West Wimmera. The Saints will look to Jason Harris to make runs to help the young side to a good total at Horsham City Oval.
