Wynn to miss rest of regular season

By ADAM CARROLL

SOUTH Services will be without tearaway fast bowler Bill Wynn Jnr for the remainder of the regular season.

Wynn, who has been South's most effective bowler this season, will miss today's Bananacoast Community Credit Union Premier League cricket clash with GI Tucabia Copmanhurst at Ellem Oval due to an infected toe.

"I bruised it in last week's match and I went to the beach this week and must have got some sand in it and now it's infected and a bit swollen," the physiotherapy student said.

Unfortunately for South, Wynn begins a three-week work placement next week in Sydney before the start of the academic year, meaning he will only return to play for South if it makes the finals.

Wynn produced another fine performance last week, snaring four wickets as South claimed first innings points against Brothers.

In Wynn's absence Jason Thompson will need to fire, while plenty will also be expected of Matt Peterson, Zac Page and Ryan Lynch.

Tucabia is also coming off a win after annihilating East Royal Tavern last week.

Tucabia skipper Damien Rouse will be buoyed by the performance of Chris Adam- son who produced glimpses of his best with a 4-74 performance.

Tucabia's batsmen will carry added confidence after their effort a fortnight ago in racking up a 330-run total against East.

At JJ Lawrence Oval Brothers Grafton Services will be desperate to atone against Harwood after last week's capitulation against South Services.

Brothers squandered any chance of taking first innings points when it lost 4-26 after resuming at 2-43, chasing South's 192-run total.

The form of Corey Bertalli with the bat was a good sign, but the top order needs to start firing.

With finals fast approaching Brothers need to start notching up some points if they want to be part of the finals action. Harwood on the other hand is almost assured of a spot in the finals and last week's draw against Westlawn Grafton Hotel proved it can match it with the any side.

East and Westlawn will play the remaining match of the round at McKittrick Park.
