Form counts for all

WHEN the last two-day games in the LJ Hooker League starts this weekend, the Brunswick-Byron team will be hoping to take as many points as they can.

While they will be maximising their share of the larger number of points on offer in the two-day games, captain Reid Campbell said the change to one-day games would suit his side.

Brunswick-Byron today take on Marist Brothers at Oakes Oval.

“It suits our team to play one-day games because we are quite an enthusiastic young team who aren’t as patient in the two-day format,” he laughed.

“The one-day games are faster and more hit and miss games, and we like to get in there and get it over with.”

Campbell admitted the Brunswick-Byron team’s one-day form was better than their two-day form.

“But our two-day game is getting better,” he said. “We played really well against Lennox.”

With six players out of action in their game against Casino last week, Brunswick-Byron is hoping to put in a solid effort and make their way up the ladder.

“We had six players out last game which really hurt us so we’re happy to be boosted back to our full bowling and batting line-up,” Campbell said. “We’re keen to get stuck into the last two-day game.”

While the team will enjoy their run of one-day games, Campbell said they certainly won’t be relaxing when the two-day format returns to the league in February.

“You can’t afford to slack off in the two-day format,” he said.

“Hopefully we’ll be able to scare a few teams and get some points out of them.”
