Poidevin Gray vs Fairfield-Liverpool - Round 2 - 2015/16
After the rain all week, the PGs boys were keen to get out on the field and stick it to the Fairfield-Liverpool side. A warm up for champions, the starfish eased many minds and many nerves as we took to the field.
Yes. Played Stobes! A Lions' batsman castled by the quick
Numerous cries of “Go Keevers!” were heard from the looming Tai Chi bands and it really got us going.
Charlie “Treebeard” Stobo struck in the first over followed by a second in the 7th over. A tight opening spell from Stobo and Matt Keevers bowled excellent in partnership, which left Fairfield 3-33 off 11 (Stobo 3).
Lachy Borg then struck with an excellent display of bowling, catching ‘Mr. Sandhu’ plum in front leaving him to walk off very disappointed with his performance and his lack of chat.

Charles Booth started brilliantly claiming a wicket early in his spell, leaving Fairfield 5-82 off 29. Charlie ended up with excellent figures of 1-34 off his 10; an excellent effort at Chatswood.
Cahlin looks to the legside for runs. A great shot by the photographer!
A run out, and wickets to Ferrero and Keevers left Fairfield 8-199 off their 50. A total that seemed not to big a task for the Stags batting order.
An excellent opening partnership from Spratty and Cam New had us in an excellent position at 0-56 off 8. With Spratt and Cam both being dismissed, at 2-59 it was up to someone to stick in and bring the boys home.
Unfortunately, wickets continued to fall at a regular pace. 9 wickets fell for only 50 runs, which meant we were bowled out for 109.
Now Cahlin plays straight while wickets tumble
A very disappointing result, considering the way we bowled to put ourselves in the game. Hopefully we can go out there this Sunday against Parramatta and prove why we are a big threat in this competition.
