Reports have been emerging from the Burras training camp that tensions are high this week with players, coaches and fans alike eagerly awaiting tomorrow's intra club thirty30 bash. Although coach Brad Horsell has been coy in keeping the naming of the sides under wraps, he did express that sides will be "evenly matched to provide the best possible contest on the day".
Skippers Rhys Paterson and Jackson Lane are expected to captain opposing sides, with each player hoping to establish early bragging rights heading into the season opener. When asked how the pitch is expected to hold up tomorrow, both skippers had no hesitation in making it clear it's a bowlers paradise out there. Jackson expressed his concerns noting "there are plenty of cracks out there in the middle mate, it's really concerning to bat on".
One person who can't wait to bowl on this pitch is Caleb Walker, the firey left armer had no hesistation in who he hopes to get one over. "Definetly Deklan, he's got a barrage of bouncers heading his way, he better hope he's on the same side as me". Evidently some strong words from the Burra's leading man.
This reporter is excited for tomorrow's clash at the McDonalds Mount Barker High School and can't wait to watch as everything unfolds.
There are many uncertainties heading into tomorrow's highly anticipated clash. Will the fans get to witness Hayden Lane bounce older brother Jackson? Will Bailey Horsell finally get one over dad Brad? Will veteran Simon Turk show the youngsters how it's done? Will a dark-horse rise from the ashes? How many smashed windows?
Be sure to get in early to check out what we expect to be an enjoyable hitout.
