Waratahs ready to dig deep

TWO weeks ago life couldn’t get any better for Waratahs.

Returning to the Orange District Cricket Association fold after a three season hiatus, Waratahs won their first game since returning thanks to a six-wicket triumph over Centrals at Riawena Oval.

Today, they’ve got the perfect chance to bring up win number two.

Gaining plenty of confidence out of the win over Centrals, a near-full strength Waratahs line-up will again look to get the job done when they meet Kinross at Jack Brabham (2) this afternoon.

“I think if we’re going to win another game this season it’s going to be against Kinross,” two blues skipper Brock Duncan said.

“The boys will really dig deep.”

In the students’ camp, a host of boarding stars will return for the game, with Sam Nicholls making the trip back from Gundagai to play this weekend.

“It’s a big effort,” coach Andrew Litchfield said.

“It really shows their commitment.”

Kinross will still be without Toby Polkinghorne and Billy O’Connor for the match, but Litchfield said his side wouldn’t be making any excuses.

“We’ve still got a solid side. We go into every game with the hope of winning and certainly this game was one we were fortunate to win in the first round,” he said.

Play begins at 1pm at Brabham (2).
