Preview Poidevin-Gray Shield Randwick Petersham v UTS North Sydney Conference Final

It’s the second most important match of the season. The Conference Final. We are part of the Sixers Conference. The other division is called the Thunder Conference. The two winners THIS SUNDAY will meet in the Grand Final on SUNDAY 10 MARCH. This is the process we followed last season and won the Grand Final giving us our first premiership in Poidevin -Gray since the old Petersham-Marrickville team won in 1972-73. We are on track to do it again!!

This season we won only 3 of the 5 preliminary matches but finished 4th in our Conference behind Manly-Warringah. That meant we met the Waratahs in the semi-final last Sunday week at Manly Oval. We won by 35 runs, knocking them out of the contest. We had met Manly earlier in the season and they beat us by 41 runs.

In the other semi-final between UTS North Sydney and Gordon at North Sydney Oval, Norths won 6-179 in 32.3 overs to Gordon’s 175 in 46.5. We also met UTS North Sydney earlier in the season and like Manly, they beat us, winning by 5 wickets at Tunks Park. However, we were not at full strength on that occasion. It will be a different situation this Sunday and the Bears will need to be on their mettle to beat us. Our boys are flying after the win over Manly and are determined to take their place in a second successive Grand Final.

Our squad is:  Angus McTaggart (Capt.), Max Robinson, Blake Weymouth, Zac Keogh, Jake Egan, Mahsen Narvel, Tom Coady, Ben Tracey, Jackson Dodd, Atharv Ramakanth, Christian Roberts, Luke Callanan, Zack Narayan.
