Cricket gets behind the Cowboys

Townsville’s cricketers will have the chance to travel and watch the Cowboys in this Sunday’s Grand Final after a decision by the clubs to change this weekend’s fixtures.

All A, Reserve and Third grade matches are off this weekend, and will instead be played as One Day matches next weekend. Fourth grade matches will go ahead as planned, but will be finished early enough for all players to enjoy the build up to the big game.

Chair of the Townsville Cricket Senior Committee, Wayne Seri, said many clubs were also impacted by player shortages due to rep commitments and long weekend holidays.

“The Bulls Masters T20 2017 Country Challenge is on in Mackay, and a dozen A Graders from across the clubs will be away. The good thing about the option to change these games to One Dayers is its limited impact on the competitions over the season. Clubs still get to play each other the same number of times.”

After two rounds, Wests are leading this season’s A Grade competition with the only perfect winning record. Last placed Saints ran the leaders close in the last round, which is a good indicator of how tight the ladder might become.
