Blues out to clinch minor premiership

MACQUARIE will be dreaming of the minor premiership when their Whitney Cup match against Rugby resumes on Saturday.

The Blues, and Ben Taylor in particular, were unstoppable last week as they wrapped up first innings points on day one at No. 3 Oval.

Rugby could only manage 104 batting first, with Taylor’s incredible 9-40 one of the standout performances of the season. Macquarie then reached 9-202 at stumps and declared immediately.

The Blues now need to bowl Rugby a second time on Saturday to be any chance of pinching top spot on the ladder.

They must also hope RSL-Colts defeat South Dubbo next door at No. 2 Oval.

Macquarie will fancy their chances of an outright following Rugby’s poor showing last week, which followed on from last round when they were dismissed for 155 by CYMS inside 52 overs.

If Rugby are to bat the day out a lot of the work may have to be done by one of their youngest batsmen.

Under-16s player Charlie Kempston has got better as the season has gone on and will again be crucial at the top of the order while Nathan Munro and James O’Brien will also be vital.

The other match of the round would have no bearing on the make-up of the finals but there was still plenty to play for.

CYMS had one of their better days of the season last week when they posted 8-251 against Newtown.

There were some nervous moments early on as the Cougars slumped to 4-33 but a century to 15-year-old Thomas Nelson saved the day.

The opportunity is now there for the men in green to score a win and leapfrog the Tigers into fourth spot on the ladder.

The Tigers meanwhile are desperate to finish the season on a positive note having found themselves in free fall since December.

At one stage last season’s runners-up were top of the ladder but they have now not won a match since early December.

Their hopes will rest with their top order batsmen, who have failed to post big scores in recent weeks.

The likes of Wayne Dunlop, Dan Holland and Skinner brothers will all be keen to spend some quality time in the middle to finish the season.
