Climatic end to the season

THE final round of home and away matches for season 2012/13 has arrived and in a blockbuster finish, positions second to fifth can all change in a potentially climactic end to the season.

Ex Students v CATS

THE all conquering Ex Students go into its final TDCA match knowing it has secured top spot on the ladder.

On the other hand CATS is in a sudden death elimination contest; a win will secure a final four spot and a loss will see them ousted.

Ex Students will be hard to beat, and has form across the board.

Lee Stockdale and Michael Warne have been first rate, while Jimmy Pryde could be vital come finals time.

Dan Nicholls, Stan Grazotis and Brett Chapman will need to make big scores.

Gormandale v Churchill

AFTER a two week bye the Tigers will enter this game fully rejuvinated.

In a boost for the Tigers, Grantley Switzer and Adam Brady will be back in the side and Shaun Barbour, after more than a month off bowling, is fit and ready to go. Churchill put up a good effort last week and will be out to spoil the Tigers’ party.

Raiders v Glengarry

ANOTHER gripping contest will pit Raiders against a Glengarry team in need of a win to secure a finals berth, while a loss could see them out.

The Glen boys have been tough in the tight ones and continue to win close matches.

Paul Henry and Ben Marks are the key batsmen, while Steve Wright and Ben Julin have been bowling well together.

Raiders will be seething that they can’t make the finals, as they have the talent to go all the way.

Centrals v Imperials

CENTRALS will go into this game full of confidence and is favoured to snatch fourth spot on the ladder from CATS.

It looks like a relatively easy game for the Lions on paper.

Dean Rode, fresh from his century, will be looking to continue his good form, while Mark Fenech is bowling a treat.

Imperials captain Brad Sizeland will want his team to finish on a high and upset Centrals.

Toongabbie v Rovers

TOONGABBIE go into this clash knowing its finals chances are over after a disappointing season.

Tom Shippen has been the standout performer for the Rams.

Rovers must show more fight in its last game for the season and need to try and keep their wickets intact.
