Round 6 Preview
Date of Event : Fri Nov 10, 2017 8:23AM
Tom Donnell (Dandenong) went past 6,500 career Premier 1st XI runs last weekend.

This weekend’s matches will see Round 6 take place for the Men’s Premier Cricket, while Round 5 will take place for Women’s Premier Cricket.


Round 6 in Men’s Premier Cricket will see Remembrance Day fall on the Saturday’s play. Premier Clubs that are hosting 1st and 2nd XI games on the Saturday starting at 11am have been requested to hold a minute’s silence to remember those who have served and sacrificed their lives for our freedom. 


Last week’s matches saw some upsets with Greenvale Kangaroos scoring their first points knocking off Frankston Peninsula, Melbourne University ending Dandenong’s unbeaten start to the season in a successful run chase and Northcote put a dent in Carlton’s run so far with a strong win on the road.


In this week’s matches, undefeated Ringwood (1st) play host to Footscray (4th) on Sunday at Bayswater with the result to shape the top positions heading into the T20 rounds, Northcote (14th) and Monash Tigers (12th) will hit the road to Bendigo to play for points under lights on Saturday at the Queen Elizabeth Oval, Geelong (9th) will be keen to get inside the top 8 when hosting Melbourne Uni (7th) at Geelong, while neighbours St Kilda (3rd) and Melbourne (13th) square off at Harry Trott with Melbourne keen to take another top 8 scalp after a slow start to the season.


Dandenong (2nd) will be keen to put last weekend’s upset loss behind them, with Kingston Hawthorn (17th) making the trip to Shepley Oval. A big win here and a loss to Ringwood could see them regain top position come Sunday night.


Casey-South Melbourne (18th) will be pushing hard to score their first points against Frankston Peninsula (15th) at Frankston. Last week’s loss to Greenvale will still be hurting the Heat as they come into this crucial match-up. Greenvale Kangaroos (16th) will be looking to boost on last week’s victory over the Heat when they take on Carlton (6th) at Princes Park.


Essendon (10th) host Prahran (8th) with a position in the top 8 at stake, while Camberwell (11th) host Fitzroy Doncaster (5th) to complete a logjam of teams fighting to get inside the top 8. 


In Women’s Premier Cricket, Round 5 sees the top of the table clash sees EMP (1st) take on Prahran (2nd) at Toorak Park with the winner to hold top spot. Expect the in-form Jess Duffin (right) to be the danger player in this game with 311 runs already this season at 103.67 in 4 knocks (1 not out). Melbourne (3rd) will take on Box Hill (4th) at the Albert for a chance to be sitting inside the top 2 come the end of Sunday, while Plenty Valley (5th) host Dandenong (6th) at Yarrambat to decide which team will score their first points of the season.
