West could turn tables on the Warriors

Saturday, 8th March, 2014

By Square Leg

Warriors narrowly beat West in the final minor round to clinch the minor premiership in B Grade a fortnight ago.

Today the Robins get the opportunity to turn the tables on the Warriors at the Jubilee Oval and much will depend on their ability to hang onto their catches and dismiss Bill Bergman cheaply.

A dropped catch cost the Robins dearly in that particular game when Bergman recovered to go on and record a valuable century and clinch the game for the Warriors.

Regular A Grader from prior seasons, Nick Christos, looms as the key player for West.

With the ball in hand he is at the batsmen all the time while he is hard to dismiss with the bat and always gives 120 pre cent.

Pavlich and Minnett also have key roles with the bat while the return of Peter Christos to their team will also bolster the West stocks.

Cowie, Bates and Underwood have all been good with the ball this season for the Warriors.

However, I expect them to find life a lot harder on a lifeless Jubilee wicket.

I think West will be doing the celebrating tonight and get some small consolation for their early departure from the finals series in A Grade last week.
