Well Round 1 certainly was a fizzer with some lop sided results

Woodside belted Nairne by 9 wickets , chasing down the target of 101 in only 15.4 overs

Mt Barker had an easy win out on the Callington turf making 8/158 off their 45 overs and knocking over the Cobras for about 88 i read somewhere.

Havent seen a score yet but was told Hahndorf accounted for Lobethal comfortably

The biggest smashing that wasn't totally unexpected was Straths demolition of a depleted Creek team to the tune of 250 runs :shock: :shock: :shock:
Creek only fielded 4 of their Premiership 11 from last season.
Batting 1st Strath compiled 7/288 with Mark Abbott leading the way with 117
In reply the Creeks were always gonna be in trouble if their top few batsmen failed and this they did as they crumbled from 1/22 off 4 overs to be all out for 38 in 13.4 overs with Matt Abbott and Brayden Gaiter taking 5 poles each.
A massive result for Strath as NRR is always a big chance of plating a role come Finals time with the current points system.

Only Round 1 i know but i'd be surprised if Hahndorf , Strath and Woodside arn't a lock for Finals.
Wouldn't write off the Creeks as last season they copped several hammerings only to recover and win the Flag and did have 5 -6 of their best players missing that should return in the next week or 2

TVCA kicked off last week. Some early thoughts:

Palmer- Reportedly will have a similar team to last season, although were missing a few in their opening round loss to Mt Torrens. Come good when it matters.
Gumeracha- Half a dozen new faces, with some pretty handy Ins. (Fidge, Spurling in particular). Will be tough to beat once they click
Lenswood- Lost some depth win young lads returning to Woodside, although S. Druwitt will help bowling stocks. Batting inconsistent.
Cambrai- Similar looking side, although always competitive can they win in March?
Paracombe- Same names, but will be keen to atone for a disappointing season last year where they struggled with ball
Mt Torrens- Same names, encouraging opening round win against Palmer. Generally competitive
Birdwood- The rotating door of players seems to have continued. Had a drought breaking win last year, can they improve?
Eden Valley- Back in A Grade ranks, appear to have a reasonable bowling line up with 3 back from Ango and a few other recruits.
SAFC- 55 years...
StKFC- 53 years..
