Prelim repeat in A grade


It is very rare that the player of the round is in the losing side but this week we simply could not go past the fantastic bowling display by Mitch Dalziel from Tod River who claimed 7/19 from just six overs, to put the brakes on the Southern Eyre South batting innings.



In a repeat of last year Tod River will take on Tasman in this year's preliminary final with the winner to meet Southern Eyre South in the grand final.

Tod River would have been happy restricting Southern Eyre South to 160 on the weekend and were looking the goods at one stage before a late innings collapse had them fall 20 runs short.

Mitch Dalziel claimed seven wickets whilst Tyson Arthur and Blaze Kay both contributed well with the bat at the top of the order.

For Tasman it was another all-round good display by their team.

Peter Brown and Matt Dyer both made 49 and Andrew Frick and David Clarke claimed three wickets each in their victory over Charlton on Sunday.

This weekend Tasman will be without their skipper Brent Harris who is on best man duties for fellow teammate Jace Rodda at his wedding.

This could leave a huge hole in the Tasman bowling attack and one that will need to be filled by the likes of George Wilks, Matt Dyer and Jayden Jude.

For Tod River at this stage there are no known outs and potentially could welcome back Craig Dorward who missed last game through injury.

This game is bound to be a fantastic match as was last year's preliminary final.

This should be another great colts grand final played on the turf at Centenary from 8.15am this Saturday morning...

The games between these two teams this year have been extremely close, so head along to Centenary Oval this Saturday to see who will win and take on Southern Eyre South next week.


Ladder leaders Charlton had a big loss to Southern Eyre South who have advanced through to the grand final.

Wayback easily accounted for Tasman on the weekend and will face-off against Charlton in this week‘s preliminary final.

Charlton should be too strong in this match and are likely to get over this Wayback side which has relied heavily on Bruce Lloyd with a bat and ball for most of the season.


Southern Eyre South will take on Tasman in this years colts grand final to be played at Centenary Oval on Saturday.

The Southerners defeated Wayback two weeks ago to book their place whilst Tasman defeated Wayback in the preliminary final on the weekend amassing 180 runs with all the top order getting amongst them.

This should be another great colts grand final played on the turf at Centenary from 8.15am this Saturday morning, head down and see the future of Port Lincoln cricket.
