Despite South West Rocks getting off to a great start with a century partnership between the opening pair of Mark Smee, 61, and 14-year-old Ben Pierce, 54, their fielding and bowling failed the team to go down to Nulla in 26 overs.

“Nulla sent us into bat which was surprising when it was a great pitch and field,” South West Rocks player Mark Smee said.

“Myself and Pierce really put on some runs but I have to admit that I should have been out at a much lower score.

“Nulla dropped three catches where I should have been out and I was also bowled on a no ball. No matter how much I tried to go out it just didn’t seem to happen.”

After making a ton between the opening batters, the South West Rocks batting line-up crumbled due to Nulla bowler Jack Lewthwaite taking a hat-trick.

“He bowled exceptionally well and despite a good effort from Braydon Peel, 38, the rest of the line-up just crumbled,” Smee said.

Even though Nulla won the game, Nulla captain Brody Clarke said it was a disappointing game.

“It was disappointing with our bowling and fielding as it was an up and down type of affair,” Clarke said.

“Mark Smee had more lives than a black cat and if it wasn’t for the excellent bowling of Jack Lewthwaite getting a hat-trick and the opening pair of Watts, 40, and Crotty, 37, putting some runs on the board, the score card could have looked a lot different.”

Nulla, 5/191 off 26 overs, defeated South West Rocks 6/189 off 34 overs.

In the other first grade game, Kempsey Heights, 10/104 off 34 overs, defeated the United All Blacks, 10/76 off 22 overs.
