A ton against boys high 1st XI is impressive though, they've almost got a monopoly on cricketers in the Hamilton area. The ****s.
Heard that Auckland strolled away with the title in the National U 18's in January . And Auckland Schools thumped Canterbury and Hamilton Schools in the Frank Grattan Cup in March. The Auckland U 18 openers chased down CD's respectable 135 odd in a 20/20 fixture at Lincoln in January in only 11 overs.Auckland must have some decent lads in this age bracket.N Z relies increasingly on major cricket schools to coach,package and deliver.
