THE OLD adage of not telling someone when they are within reach of a milestone backfired for Tucabia-Copmanhurst.
The mumblings on the Ulmarra Showground sidelines that Matt Pigg was on 99 reached the Tucabia-Copmanhurst destroyer standing on his bat in the middle.
"I saw Bobby (McKenzie) run back to the boys after checking the score and then heard Brothers' Jake Kroehnert say he's on 99," Pigg revealed.
"It crossed my mind just to look for the single. But I decided it was going the same way as they had all been going."
Pigg opened up for a big drive which sliced out to Brothers captain Michael Summers waiting at point.
"It was a good length ball and it was that stage of the innings when you have to try to force things along," Pigg said.
"At that stage we were still targeting 300."
Tucabia completed its innings on 9 for 286 and held on for a 30-run win.
