Three debutants help Rupertswood over the line in round 1 clash

Joel Muir, Ricky Polzella and Joe Honner made their 1st Xi debut at the weekend with Rupertswood overcoming a determined Sunbury Kangaroos at home. New ball bowler, Joel Muir comes to Rupertswood from the Kangaroos, Ricky donned the gloves following his success in where he was awarded the Rupertswood rising star winner and after growing 2 feet over the winter break and a solid preseason performance in the nets, Joe Honner took the first over with Joel at the other end. Our new ball bowling partnership age has effectively halved in one season. Will Honner (truck)

In further good news at Rupertswood, the second XI had a day out versus the Kangaroos with our young talent leading the way. Aidan Jones (Binga) tore through the top order with an impressive 4/23 from 8 overs and Ned Crotty picking up 4/16 of his 4.3 overs, picking up three wickets in one over. Wilkes also applied great pressure, going for only 8 runs in 6 overs with the new ball. Life member and club secretary Warren Hall, top scored with 78 supported well by another young and up and coming cricketer in Owen Thompson who batted at 5.

This week all sides take the field! Good luck!
