Yet another 'Bear' attack at Iluka Oval

WANDERERS V YAMBA: Brandon 'Bear' Honeybrook's love affair with the Iluka wicket continued on Saturday with the big left arm paceman taking 5/8 for Wanderers against Yamba in the LCCA first grade cricket competition.

The haul gives Honeybrook the figures of 11/9 in his past two outings at the ground.

He partnered with his younger brother, Zac, 2/4, to demolish Yamba for 37 and set up a seven-wicket win.

The boys' father, Dave Honeybrook, was also responsible for running out Noah Green, making the family responsible for eight of the 10 dismissals.

Brandon was not sure why his figures are so good at Iluka.

"There's a bit in it for the bowlers, with pace and bounce," he said. "But it's pretty true so there's something there for the batsmen as well.

"I've got 37 and 12 when I've batted here this season," he said.

He said the Yamba batsmen did not throw their wickets away.

"Four of them were bowled playing defensive shots," he said. "The other one was caught off an attempted pull shot."

There's a bit of sibling rivalry when it comes to the pace of the two Honeybrook brothers.

"I don't know who's the fastest," Brandon said. "If I was asked, I'd say me, but others might say Zac.

"I know that when I get fired up I seem to be able to send them down pretty quick, but if Zac fires up, he's really sharp."

He said the team is in good shape with one more game against Lawrence next week before the semi-finals.

"If we can beat Lawrence next week that will ensure our spot and knock Lawrence out," he said.
