    Well it ain't far away boys !!!! Very interested in Erdl's comments on the news last night. Saying East will be the big improvers because of their kids from last year. Don't forget about the imports they have . Very handy !!!! I was disappointed that he said Raiders will struggle . This is not aimed at Raiders but if the CAW think they will struggle then why put them up at this stage. What I want Raiders to do is stick it up them and win a few games.
    The big question is how well will Wodonga gel this season?

    Last years side and what grade I think they'll play
    Roberts: -Gone
    Garvey: WCC JUNIOR -1st grade
    Jackson:-Coach-1st grade
    Beattie: WCC JUNIOR-1st grade
    King:NO IDEA-1st grade
    Rogalski:WCC JUNIOR-2nds
    Craig:WCC JUNIOR -Gone
    Dalbosco:WCC JUNIOR-1st grade
    Hales:WCC JUNIOR -1st grade
    Craig:WCC JUNIOR -Gone
    Collins: WCC JUNIOR-2nds
    Robinson:WCC JUNIOR -1st grade
    Hutchinson:WCC JUNIOR-2nds

    This years side (in no particular order)
    Tonkin
    Ball
    Jackson
    Beattie
    Garvey
    King
    Dalbosco
    Saker
    Hales
    KB
    Robinson
    Booth (12th man)
    All players come and go so maybe it's all a storm in a teacup???

    Good luck to their 3rds (oops district a grade) playing at Willow, any truth it won't be ready til after christmas? I'm sure the batting decks at Baranduda and Wodonga Raiders cricket club's would be more accomodating than trying to field 3rd and 4th rate sides in the district comp.:confused:

    Let's leave Wodonga alone for a day or two. Happen to see Belvoir having a practice match yesterday. A few new players on the ground. Not sure who they played against . Belvoir look a lot younger then last year . Just wondering if any others had practice games.??? Not many sleeps to go for the real thing !!!

    so i have heard on the grapevine that brandon purtell been told he will be paid $50 per game to play at new city, surely this is not true. cricket is a gentlemans game and it would be a disgrace if new city are paying players, especially young players. i have heard rumors that andrew lade gets paid to play at tallangatta as well. if this is true, cricket will become like country football and players will shop themselves to the highest bidder. on anohter note, talking about pre season games, i drove by bilson yesterday arvo and stopped to watch albury in a net session. there was only about 10 blokes there but most if not all were 1st grade players, with hayesy and dan dixon watching. but it was interesting to see sam oconner there batting and bowling. i may have been wrong about him going to east albury!

    Are you sure that it was Sam O'Conner ? Sam has been training at Lavington Panthers all pre-season, as far as I know he hasn't missed one session.

    I'm happy for people to get stuck into Wodonga and to give my club (Lavington Panthers) a much needed break.:)

    Anyone read the profiles in the Border Mail today? How's Robbie Jackson's form? Question - "Who is your most important player?" - Jacko "Probably the coach I would have thought". Ha, talk yourself up why don't you!

    The next question should've been "Who has the biggest ego?" Although he's probably got a couple of competitors for that title in his team nowadays.

    Gotta love a bloke with a bit of self confidence.

    Well watched most of Lavi's innings. Gee Kelly Park pitch was bounchy but the spinners had there measure. Eggy and Simmonds bowling in tandem was really good . Belvoir had a lot of luck in the field so when it's your day it's your day.
    Well done Raiders on batting out the overs who knows they might get a upset one game. Who knows it could be against North on sunday.
    Can't believe CAW is playing Saturday and sunday . I bet there's a few teams struggling for numbers.

    Thanks big guys dont run....the boys dug in on saturday not that the east albury guys were that happy about it...not sure why...maybe they expected us to just throw it away and get bowled out inside 15 overs or something..like the rest of the competition thinks will happen week in week out....any way its going to be a big week end for us, 1st crack at some defectors...lol...should be interesting to say the least!!!

    jenno no doubt you play for raiders. so it read in the paper that you guys just blocked out the 50 overs, any reason why you didnt try and chase down the runs. surely losing by 30 runs and everyone having some match batting practice is better than losing by 90 and only 6 or 8 blokes getting a bat. will be interesting to see how much you have to say after th 'defectors' get the last laugh this week. talk to us next week.

    Well this doesn't really warrant a reply but I will give you one anyway....firstly you obviously don't play for East Alburys A Grade side nor were you at the game on Saturday other wise you would know what was in the paper was not 100% correct yes we did decide to bat our overs out 1/2 way through our innings but what you didn't read in the paper was how well they bowled to us early, they kept the pressure on our top order and made it very difficult to score the only thing they couldn't do early doors was take wickets, then after they got 3 or 4 quick that's when we decided to bat out our allowance of overs and use the time at the crease for the remaining batsman rather than as you put it chase runs and have it left to the tail to hold on and try and keep the game going on so as far as time in the middle I believe we achieved that by giving our batsman the responsibility of occupying the crease, as long as i have been playing cricket (which is quite some time now) it has always been the bowling sides job to get the batting side out has it not?
    We will continue to use game time in what ever manner we see fit and if that is going to annoy or piss off the rest of the competition then tuff don't care if you don't want us here don't care if the other 8 teams don't want us here YOUR ALL STUCK WITH US! Now as for the getting the last laugh well the result is not important atm for us and seriously there is no pressure on us at all to win games its more how we go about getting time into our players and what they need to do to raise their game to this new level, now im more than happy to go through our game with you here each week if you like but no matter what you or anyone else thinks we will approach all our games the way we believe to be in the best interest for the Wodonga Raiders, Oh and by the way I don't personally know you or where you play I wouldn't pass judgement on you or your club on the way they play their cricket never have never will my only concern is how my club conducts its self.
    Regards
    Steve Jennings
