Sharp Sharks on the attack

THE last Neilson Builders Cup two day game before the Christmas break promises to be hard fought as sides look to strengthen their grip on final four placings.

Two huge games are scheduled for round seven and both contests are sure to be gripping affairs.

Ex Students v Glengarry

THE reigning premiers will host the match of the round at Stoddart Park against Glengarry.

The Sharks go into the game full of confidence after their record breaking 10 wicket win over Churchill last week.

All eyes will be on round six centurians Lee Stockdale and Greg Munro, who have piled on a majority of the Sharks’ runs to date; the next best bat is Rory Hare who has 53 runs from three digs.

Glengarry is also marching towards the top four and after last week’s batting effort should be confident.

Ben Marks and Ben Julin will be the key batsmen in this clash.

Toongabbie v Gormandale

TOONGABBIE will look to this game as a mini final.

Currently sitting in sixth spot on 18 points, the Rams have to win this to keep in touch with the four.

Both teams are full of match winners.

Steve Nichols, Tom Shippen and Anthony Scott is the go to trio for Toongabbie, while the Tigers will welcome back Adrian Burgiel to complement a line up including in form skipper Travis Switzer and gun bowlers Stu Anderson and Shaun Barbour.

CATS v Imperials

NEITHER side can make finals but both are coming off wins.

Barney Webber and Corbin Sutherland will be out to continue their good form while Imperials will be hoping Alex Butler and Brendan McGregor can score well.

Traralgon West v Rovers

BRAGGING rights are on the line in this lower ladder clash of two teams which have been disappointing.

Traralgon West will look to Jon Bell and Corey Rogers to do some damage with the ball against Rovers’ key batsmen Dean Gillard, Simon Duff and Peter Ingwersen.

Centrals v Churchill

CHURCHILL suffered its first defeat last week when it failed to take a wicket against Ex Students.

Centrals are coming off a big loss and also need to bounce back.

Jarrod Allan and Corey Pollard are in form but Mark Rawson is the main man.

The Cobras have been brilliant with the bat and Ben Kearns leads the way with more than 400 runs.

Skipper John Keighran has also been outstanding.
