Mixed Bag of Results as the Christmas Break Nears – Weekend Wrap 3rd/4th November 2022

Another massive Weekend for the Waratahs as our Men we go from strength to strength and Women continue in right direction despite W1s loss.

The highlight of the weekend was without a doubt the amazing Outright win in M1s chasing down 186 in 21.5 overs thanks to a ridiculous 78* from Joel Davies and another big wicket haul from Ryan Hadley. M4s also won Outright, while Brewers, W2s and M2s all had big wins.

M3s and W3s both came very close to victory but just weren’t able to finish it off. M5s, W1s and Sundays M1s T20 outfit were not quite able to match it with their opposition.

Overall we are sitting 1st in the Men’s Club Championship by 132 Points, and 4th in Women’s Club Championship, with Sydney sitting at the top.

4 Pines Male Player of the Week

Joel Davies - 78 & 78

This weeks 4 Pines Player of the Week is a contentious one, but we’ve decided that Joel Davies is a worthy winner.

His 78 off 49 balls on Saturday to deliver 10 points was out of this world. But he did it again on Sunday with 78 off only 41 balls in PGs. Combine this with his 68 in last Thursday’s T20, and it was a huge few days for Joel.

Seadrift Distillery Female Player of the Week

Eliza Henry - 55

Eliza Henry has continued her solid form with a match-winning 55 in Sunday’s W2s encounter with Penrith.

It enabled W2s to put together a very strong T20 score of 143. She is our Seadrift Distillery Women’s PLayer of the Week.

Eliza has long been seen as a future star of the club with both bat and ball after coming through our junior ranks. A punishing bat, she showed how good she can be on Sunday when given the opportunity to open the batting.

Men's First Grade



anly started the day needing 32 more runs to get first innings points against Mosman. 7 for 108 chasing 140 with plenty of overs left in the day. O. Davies and Hadley came to the crease and partnered together to get 25 of them before Davies got out just before the runs were needed. Manly ended up getting bowled out with a 15 run lead with Hadley finishing 20 not out to help us get over the line.

The Manly boys decided to send Mosman back in looking at a possible outright win. Seward started very well with the new ball taking 3 wickets in his opening spell opening the game up for us. A few small partnerships formed throughout the innings but Hadley continued to take wickets and keep us in the hunt for what was looking like a close finish. Bowling close to 15 overs straight, Hadley ended up taking another 6 wickets on top of his 8 bringing him to 14 for the match, a Manly record across all 5 grades, some of the best fast bowling you will ever see. An interesting approach from Mosman at 9 down, leading by 186, they decided to declare and give us 22 overs to attempt to chase the runs.

A small reshuffle of the batting order meant O. Davies opened the batting with Foster but was run out early in the innings. Davies ended up getting caught for 30 which brought Lenton and J. Davies to the crease. Lenton scored 30 off 13 balls giving us a boost on the run rate. Farrel also departed shortly after leaving Brewster and J. Davies needing around 10 an over for the last 8 overs. Coming down to the final over needing 2 runs, we took it deep and got the runs with 1 ball to spare. Davies hit the Mosman boys around the ground which was one of the better innings played at Manly Oval hitting 78 not out off 49 balls to secure an outright win against the reigning premiers. This was well supported by Brewster 19 not out to ensure no more wickets were lost.

3 Points – Ryan Hadley

Men's Second Grade



aturday was one of the days to remember in second grade history, with the first session being one of the most destructive and classiest forms of seam bowling many have witnessed. Chasing just north of 300 for the day, Mosman were posed with a challenge, and Manly knew how crucial a solid start would be.

Veteran and Tumut junior, Andrew ‘Philander’ Jamieson decided to head back to school for the day (despite celebrating quite hard for the end of term), and began teaching a lesson on 6 stitches. Almost immediately Jamo had the ball zipping around everywhere, completely opening up the techniques of the opposition. At the other end, Tom Kaye (bar manager of the year) with the smokiest of eyes, decided to ignite his inner Jimmy A, and he too, had it absolutely hooping everywhere. Tom too, is etching himself into veteran status.

In terms of cricket, it’s hard to say much else except wickets just kept tumbling, and tumbling, and tumbling ….. ( add another four tumblings here) and there were 7 by lunch !! This was becoming unbelievable, and with another hour or so after lunch, we had 10. Jamo finishing with a ridiculous 5fa 30 off 16 and Tommy with a silly 4/27 off 18. This was one of the more superb days out with the ball. These lads were very strongly supported by a top class Hicksy and wigs, who looked just as destructive, but weren’t left many wickets to play with after the destruction. Both were top quality however.

We attempted an outright, but the 6 points was all that was written. Until next time… Go Manly.

Men's Third Grade



he 3s boys turned up early to Grahams in numbers in preparation of the big task at hand to chase the remaining 95 runs with just 5 wickets in hand.

We welcomed back Zach Trewartha from his short stint in 2s, with Oscar Lucius heading down to get it done for the boys in 4s, leaving the game retired not out on 12.

Spirits were high as the boys headed out to warm up, even Council joined in for the game of touch footy, potentially leading to later success one might say.

Zach T and Mathew Sunshine headed to the crease in effort to chase the runs. Zach got a few boundaries away early putting a good early dent in the run chase. Shortly Sunshine was dismissed, followed by Dunnachie providing an instant replay of his wicket on the very next ball. Lachlan Kerr came to the crease and looked solid until he was dismissed, Zach T then attempted to hurry the chase along as his brother Lachie T entered and the Trewartha brothers batted together for their first time ever. Roscoe watched on as his beloved sons batted, Zach getting a couple more boundaries away before being dismissed for a well made ….

This left us 9 down with 60 runs still to get. Enter Michael Council, fresh off great efforts in the warm up touch footy game, however, without his 6ers lid much to the disappointment of the growing crowd at Grahams. After batting all week at training, Council and Lachie T showed great determination in chasing the runs, Council getting a few bombs away. The boys got within 10 runs of Mosman’s total before Lachie T was dismissed for 15. With council remaining not out on 31 with the highest score of the innings.

We were left with 2 overs before tea to bowl. Sunshine picked up the early wicket before the break. We were confident over the tea break to have a crack at the second innings, however, Mosman batted well and we called it a day after another 10 overs with Mosman 1-70ish.

All in all a disappointing first loss of the season for the 3s boys. We will look to get a couple more wins with the upcoming one day games to continue momentum going into the break.

Men's Fourth Grade



he wicket was hard and flat, it showed a bit of promise for the ball with a smothering of green grass on the top.

Day 2 had us requiring 9 wickets. Hayden again showing his class with the ball took 4/22 the pick of the bowlers on day 2. James Waddington with 2/33 and Ollie Melville 2/24

With Mosman posting 139 we only required 9 runs for 10 points, of which Wheeler and Dunlop safely chased down in 8 balls. A show of pure dominance and confidence of the mighty and legendary 4th grade manly team.

Men's Fifth Grade



he 5s boys returned to Mike Pawley Oval for Day 2 against the Whales, who were 6/75 overnight needing 9 more runs to claim first innings points. While we knew it would be a tough ask, all the boys had full faith in the bowling group, and after a strong warm up (thank you Charlesy for your assistance), we were ready to have a real crack at taking the final four wickets quickly.

Pat Day (2/35) and Will Mathieson (2/16) bowled incredibly well without luck, beating the outside edge numerous times, but unfortunately to no avail. Mosman slowly crept their way past our first innings total, however, we stayed disciplined and it wasn’t long until Liam Dinan (4/15 off 16 overs) picked up his fourth wicket of the innings courtesy of a sharp catch behind the stumps to Hayden Calvert. This brought Mosman’s skipper to the crease, as Dinan and Beau Kelley (0/45) continued to ask questions of the opposition batters without any further luck. A 70 run partnership ensued, as the Mosman pair occupied the crease and made our chances of a second innings win more difficult. Matt Evans (0/14) bowled a probing 6 over spell, along with skipper Simon Waddington (1/11), while Will Gustafson (1/25) picked up the wicket of the Whales captain for 50, courtesy of a sharp one handed catch from Chris Halloran at gully.

Pat Day and Will Mathieson returned to the attack, and both picked up thoroughly well deserved wickets after having no luck during excellent spells earlier in the day. This brought Mosman’s innings to a close as they were bowled out right on the stroke of Tea for 168. With not enough time left in the game for us to go for second innings points, the captains shook hands, Mosman winning on first innings.

A tough loss for the boys, but you can’t question the effort, as the boys toiled the whole game, particularly with the ball and in the field. Back to 50 over cricket next week against Easts.

Men's T20 First Grade



disappointing end to our M1s T20 campaign with a heavy loss to Gordon meaning we missed out on the finals by quotient.

We started well with the ball and had Gordon at 7/105 after 16 overs. However we bowled and fielded too loose in the last few overs and they got away to 150, which was 20-30 more than they should have got.

With the bat, again we started well and were on track at 2/50, however a disappointing middle order collapse meant we were bowled out for 109

Poidevin Gray



nother PGs victory, this one over Gordon, has booked our spot in the Quarter Finals.

Winning the todd and electing to bat, Brynn Mendel again got us off to a flying start with 38 off 21 including 2 huge sixes. However when he got out, it was the Joel Davies show with the bat. COntinuing off where he left on Saturday, he put the Gordon bowlers to all parts of the ground in getting to 78 off only 41 balls.

We got to 5/179 off our 20 overs.

Gordon started their innings on fire, taking 21 off the first over and putting on 75 for the first wicket. However we sensed that it was always going to be a mammoth task, and as Dunnachie, Davies, Seward, Dhillon and Melville worked their way with the ball, it proved to be a little too much for the Stags. All out 168.

Quarter Final at Manly Oval against Randwick-Petersham on Sunday 18th December. See you there.

Women's First Grade



fter playing two one day games, we had to switch gears again to play an isolated T20 match against Penrith at a hot and humid Howell Oval. W1s captain, Mik, won the toss and elected to bat. With two early wickets, Penrith started off their bowling attack strongly, limiting the runs to a minimum. Opener Annie had to work hard to stay at the crease and managed to rebuild with a partnership of 40 with Sarah (13). Another quick partnership of 40 between Mik (16) and Charlie who hit a quick fire 20 off 23 balls at the back end of the innings saw us getting to 7/101 after the 20 overs. Annie was top scorer with a great knock of 31 off 40 balls, performing in difficult conditions and under pressure – well done!

With the sun still beating down, we went out in the field to bowl. A few early boundaries from the Penrith openers set us on the back foot. However, Mik managed to take the wicket of Penrith’s captain with an absolute peach of a delivery that knocked off stump out of the ground, putting us back in the game. As overs kept ticking over, and with no wickets taken, the two batters at the crease were able to settle in and build a strong partnership that saw them to the end.

We were able to drag it out to the 17th over, however Penrith proved that they were the better team on the given day outshining us with bat and ball. With a lot to take away and learn from this week’s loss, the girls look to turn it around when they’re back to the long format against Parramatta next week.

Women's Second Grade



econd grade turned up to Howell oval for the middle game of the T20 triple header against Penrith. Mia lost the toss and we were sent into bat, but luckily that’s what we had wanted to do anyway.

Eliza and Mia opened the batting, ticking it over as they got settled. They put the bad ball away nicely and soon accelerated the run rate. Both girls were scoring freely and finding the boundary with the outfield running nicely.

Eliza brought up a really classy and graceful 50 before getting caught at the end of the 12th over for 55 off 50 balls. Mia and Brooke batted well together, with Mia the next wicket to fall. Brooke and Steph ran really well until Brooke was caught and Laura was bowled not long after trying to go for it in the second last over. Nat G and Steph kept pushing through for the last over and we ended up with a great total of 4/143 off 20 overs.

Not long after and we were back out there in the field. The sun was really hot and with a fast outfield, everyone pushed through really well and put in lots of effort. Sophie and Molly opened the bowling with a combo of spin and pace. They kept the run rate really low and got us off to a great start, with the required rate for Penrith creeping up each over. The first breakthrough came from Emma in the 10th over, knocking out the stumps of one of the Penrith openers with their total just under 40.

Penrith tried to accelerate their run rate with lots of risky singles as the pressure built, eventually hitting a catch to Nat G at mid on off Laura’s bowling. Molly came back on to finish her spell and got a nice lbw. Jazzy, Sophie and Brooke ended the innings nicely, limiting penriths runs and with a run out on the last ball of the game Penrith finished 4/101 off 20 overs.

A really convincing win by the girls and a great bounce back from the week previous and we look to keep pushing the momentum forward as we face Gordon next week in a T20.

Brewer Shield



n early start for today’s Manly’s brewers girls, traveling all the way to Penrith! Our skipper Caitlin sadly lost the tost, meaning Penrith opened the batting and Manly were sent in to field.

Lara Hughes and Darcy Whiteley opened the bowling, keeping things tight and putting pressure on the Penrith opening batters. Soon after, in over 3, Manly took their first wicket with a brilliant catch by Darcy. This was quickly followed up with a direct hit of the stumps for her second wicket in her fourth over! Lara then picked up a wicket in her second over. Skipper Caitlin and Hannah Moss took over the bowling. In Hannah’s first over, OUT! Caught, right into her hands! Later on Charlotte Croll came in for the 18th over, and OUT! Caught again! At the end of the 20 overs, it was 5-83. Time for Manly to bat!

Manly skipper, Caitlin Du Preez opened the batting, alongside Hannah Moss. The two faced the openers well and gave Manly the best start with 40 runs in the first 10 overs. Caitlin was then unfortunately dismissed, bringing Brooke Frew in as our third batter. Brooke adding runs to Manly’s score before unfortunately being dismissed as well. In came Charlotte Croll, and the girls steadily continued to chase down Penrith’s score. After a stumping, Bella Zovi came into bat around the 14 over mark, with Manly only needing 20 more runs. Bella was replaced by Arabella Handly, leaving Hannah and Arabella facing the remaining few balls.

Manly took the Win! Finishing their batting innings at 4-85. Well batted to Hannah Moss with her 48*

Manly then celebrated in the change rooms with a loud and proud rendition of the club song. A great display from Hannah and the team work from the girls, next week is St George Sutherland playing at home.
