Robbo roars for Brothers

AT McKittrick Park Brothers captain and all-rounder Brad Robertson ripped through South’s batting line up with an inspired spell of bowling.

Robertson snared 6-26 as South plunged to be all out for 81.

In reply Brothers were 4-117 with Jarrad Lynch (39 not out) and Adam Dewberry (2 not out)

For South their batting continues to be their Achilles heel.

Tom Kroehnert with 27 was the only batsmen to show any resistance with eight batsmen failing to reach double figures.

On a positive note for South they have removed Mick Summers and Brad Robertson, but with a 36-run lead and plenty of batting to come Brothers are in a position to push for outright points.

“We have an opportunity to gain some bonus points which could see us make a serious challenge for second position,” Robertson said.

“We will be pushing for quick runs in the first over, if we can add another 40 or 50 runs in quick time we can put South back into bat. “Even if South manage to get a lead of around a 100 we are confident in running them down.” Brothers are currently sitting in fourth place on the ladder and with Tucabia White in trouble against Coutts, Brothers could slip into third spot behind Harwood and Westlawn.
