Today we played St. Laurence's College at their home ground here in Brisbane. For the forth time in a row we lost the toss and SLC elected to bat first. After a very slow start, Jean gave the boys one his motivational speeches at drinks break (others may call it a kick up the bum). They went back out and started playing with true Rosmini spirit (I guess the kick up the bum worked). Lead by Niko Weerakoon, the wickets started tumbling. Niko notched up a spectacular 6 wickets for 24 in 9 overs. Some sharp keeping by Shaun Cooke sealed the fate of the opposition. SLC was all out for 108 after only 33 overs.More
Rosmini Played St. Patrick's College from Strathfield, Sydney. We lost the toss and St. Pat's elected to bat first and went on to put 186/9 up for Rosmini to chase down. Notable performances by Niko Weerakoon who bowled 3 for 34 after 9 overs and Josh Hilton-Jones who bowled 2 for 28 after 10 overs. Unfortunately after a good opening by Jake Fitzgibbon (35) and Fraser Conway (26), continued pressure put on by the St Pat's bowlers meant we fell short, all out for 143 after 46.5 overs.More
