Yamba skipper ‘plans' revenge

WHERE'S a duck when you need one?

Harwood captain Mick Young couldn't pull a duck out of the barrel when he needed one against Yamba on Saturday after star Batsman Troy Urquhart produced a whirlwind innings of 135

Urquhart savaged the Harwood bowlers as his side past the 250-run mark at Yamba to set up a comprehensive victory.

In reply, Harwood was bundled out for 135 with Steve Hogan (72) and Chris Churchill (49) the only two batsmen to trouble the Yamba bowlers.

Young admitted it was the first time he'd witnessed Urquhart in full-flight.

"Yamba batted first and one of the Urquhart fellows put on 135," the Harwood skipper said.

"He just slapped us all around the park and they ended up getting 250-odd."

After taking over the captain's role this season from Matt Petrie, Young said he still had a bit to learn.

"I'll learn from this," Young said.

"I'll take him (Urquhart) on a better way next time around. We'll fix him next game ... I've got a plan."
