How sad it would be to have a final at Dendy park, absolute paddock.
If Chelsea get Tolley early (which they may have already done?), then it could make for a very interesting match. Old Mentonians are 7th for total runs on the ladder.Surely OMs and Parky can chase down 160 and 150 respectively? OMs are not getting enough credit here, any side with Tolley + Woite + Seeary as batting depth is pretty strong, plus the depth players like Fisher, Russo etc. And Parky are surely good enough to beat Hampton, who rely on one player. Ferguson to get a big one against his old team.
Tolley has batted at No. 3 in every game so far (apart from the T20s) so it's unlikely he is the man out. Although he is their best bat, he's barely made 300 for the season, and OMs have only three names in the top 40 run scorers for the grade. It will be a battle for them, I think, as it will be for Parkdale with Galloway and Walling out.If Chelsea get Tolley early (which they may have already done?), then it could make for a very interesting match. Old Mentonians are 7th for total runs on the ladder.
And even if Parkdale and Chelsea both win, Chelsea could still jump them in the 4.
Will be a very tight squeeze in the 4 either way!
Firstly let me declare my bias I play for parky just not in the 1s...I would think Brighton at their best would not beat OM. They are playing away on a road at OM not on their uggly paddock.
Prediction is the two fav's OM and Port both to win semi's easily and play off in the GF.
Ooo pick me puck me... Was it Chapple... Again! What a flogWhat a debacle last Saturday was with the weather, interesting to see Brighton union players driving from ground to ground to see if games were on, apparently were told by a certain Chelsea player to F#%k off!
He'd be calling a spade a spadeOoo pick me puck me... Was it Chapple... Again! What a flog
Thats the attack, that was supposed to be a Senior Division one !Brighton fell over for 61 - although there seemed to be lots of grumblings over some decisions. OM's have only just taken the first innings lead, so another slow day at Keysborough. This used to be a high-scoring ground...
Meanwhile the much vaunted (!) Parkdale attack managed to restrict Port to just 260. I reckon that's too many for the Parkdale boys, so it will be a Port-OM final, as predicted by most.
Never in the game. 260 at Port against their stingy attack was always going to be way too much. From what i saw, Port's batting depth is very strong. Making 260 with only 32 from their main man. They do score very quickly. OM must get off to a tight start and get some early wickets, because i think they will really struggle to make 200+ against them, going by their recent scores.Saw a bit of the Port v Parkdale match, Khawaja looked impressive but the outfield was pretty quick so from the position they were in I'd say Port would be disapointed with 260 and Parkdale still have a sniff.
