What a busy tournament period it has been for our representative and development cricketers!

 

Our Wairarapa Green and Gold Riverbend Development teams have been to camp and produced exceptional results. Both teams only losing one game at tournament meaning a 5 from 6 result for each side!

 

Our under 15 girls took part in the CD under 15 district tournament in Palmerston North pre Xmas and found the going tough finishing in 6th place. But the excellent news from that was Kate Sims would’ve been named in the Central Districts Under 15 girls side but was unable for selection due to her national swimming commitments and Sinead Barrell was named as a non-travelling reserve. The girls also played another match against Cornwall (as well as some other exciting activities) in the Hawkes Bay as part of their Riverbend tournament.

 

Wairarapa Green coach Chris Osborne also answered the call from Wanganui to enter another team into the year 5 and 6 tournament grade as they were short in that particular grade. Chris did an amazing job at getting a team together at short notice and they found themselves on a similar winning note as the other development teams before them losing just one match

 

Extra special mention must got to Don McIntyre, Chris Osborne and Simon Roseingrave for their fantastic organising and coaching of these sides
