The problem with WA they are full of consistently average players like North, Voges, Birt, Shaun Marsh, Hogan and Beer. Who do enough to stay in the side, but not enough to win you games. It means they never have really poor season where they come last, but don't ever seem to be in finals contention. It also one of reason why young bats and bowlers don't always get a run like in other states. The older players are just doing enough to stay in the side.
Blues looking good in the chase, great to see Nev scoring runs at the top.
