SALE-Maffra will begin its senior Gippsland Cricket League premiership defence this Sunday at Bundalaguah against Central Gippsland.
Featuring players from six of the association’s eight first grade teams, the Sharks will be led by Stratford’s Jack Tatterson.
Tatterson will have some talent as his disposal with Maffra’s Josh Rurawhe the association’s leading run-scorer last season, while last season’s cricketer of the year Brad Scott was the leading wicket-taker and third top run-scorer. Tatterson, Dylan Bolton and Jack Reitschel were also in the top four wicket-takers last season.
During the first two rounds of this season, Tatterson, Scott, Rurawhe, Toby Leeds, Nathan Massey and Adam Diamond have each scored half-centuries.
IN the under 18s and 16s, Sale-Maffra will host Leongatha at Maffra and the College Oval respectively, while the Sale-Maffra women will play Warragul at Wurruk.
ALL matches will begin at 10.15am.
