Saturday 3rd & 10th November
2 Day Game – 11.40am Start

Fremantle (10th) v Bayswater-Morley (11th) at Stevens Reserve West:
D Skinn-M Hooper
Fremantle: Brayden Sutton(c), Ross Macauley, Ashton Turner, Daniel Kennedy, Matthew Micale, Chris Davenport, Liam Dallimore, Jhye Richardson, Jake Carder, Josh Chojnowski, Zach Ferris, Mitchell Marsh, Bayley Holman, Sam Whiteman
Bayswater-Morley: Liam O'Connor(c), Aaron Todd, Robert Guy, Mitchell Todd, Manuel Hunwick, Jonty Wilde, Ross Loiacono, Jake Lewis, Steve Tompsett, Joshua Fontana, James Wainman

Milestones: Jake Carder (F) passed 2000 runs, Manuel Hunwick (BM) personal best 55 runs, Jonty Wilde (BM) passed 100 wickets, Ross Loiacono (BM) personal best 5-47 and took his 2nd five-wicket haul.

Preview: Fremantle comprehensively outplayed Wanneroo in Round 5, while Bayswater Morley enjoyed an upset win over Willetton. Jonty Wilde and Ross Loiacono will need to continue their great form with the ball for the Bears, if they are to limit Fremantle batsman Jake Carder’s influence on the match and continue their winning ways.

Gosnells (12th) v Subiaco Floreat (7th) at Sutherlands Park 1:
J Paterson-S Lamb
Gosnells: Matthew Leipold(c), Ben Green, Brandon Jacobs, David Roberts, Luke McNamee, Brodee Foster, Timothy Hale, David Thomason, Jacob Panetta, Chris Prescott, Liam Duffield
Subiaco Floreat: Christopher Hansberry(c), Hamish McKenzie, Chris Isles, Calum How, Andrew Holder, Aaron Lilly, Tim Monteleone, Geremy Fatouros, Joshua Parker, Jack Retallack, Lucas Martin

Milestones: Matthew Leipold (G) about to pass 100 wickets and took his 2nd five-wicket hall, Chris Prescott (G) about to pass 100 wickets, Chris Hansberry (SF) passed 350 wickets.

Both sides endured first innings losses in Round 5, with Gosnells falling to Rockingham Mandurah, while the Lions lost a tough match to Melville. The focus will be on the batting line up in this match, as Gosnells and the Lions have struggled to produce a winning score on a regular basis this season.

Mount Lawley (8th) v Wanneroo (14th) at Breckler Park 1:
F Davis-D Gibbons
Mount Lawley: Callum Taylor(c), James Newnham, Corey Evans, Ethan Petta, Luke Berendsen, Jack Kavanagh, Andrew Bottega, Gurkeerat Pabla, Jay Chislett, Justin Kandiah, Mohamed Ijaz
Wanneroo: Christian Smith(c), Travis Birt, Kyle Millar, Jack Cattrall, Robert Richards, Mathew Dzodzos, Christopher Quelch, Matthew Spoors, Stuart Thompson, Caiden Eaton, Haydn Slodecki

Milestones: Andrew Bottega (ML) personal best 100 runs, Ethan Petta (ML) personal best score of 82, Christian Smith (W) personal best five catches, Jack Cattrall (W) took his 8th five-wicket haul.

Preview: Mount Lawley defeated Midland Guildford in Round 5, while Wanneroo remain winless in season 2018-19 after being defeated by Fremantle. Wanneroo need to find some batting support for Matthew Spoors as soon as possible. Being bowled out for a paltry 66 runs in a Two-Day match is less than ideal, so an improved performance from the batting line up will give the squad some confidence moving forward.

Rockingham-Mandurah (3rd) v Midland-Guildford (16th) at Lark Hill 1:
J Sherry-L Lindsay
Rockingham-Mandurah: Craig Simmons(c), Dane Ugle, Tyler Robertson, Aaron Burrage, Damien Burrage, Joel Marion, Vincent Poller, Leon Coombs, Nathan Hutchison, Adam France, James Bracey
Midland-Guildford: Ashley Mucciarone(c), Zac Howard, Matthew Olsen, Keaton Critchell, Hudson Knight, Hayden Cobley, Austin Thomas, Mark Rice, Andrew McBrine, Thomas Gosling, James Kirwan

Milestones: James Bracey (RM) personal best 87 runs, Craig Simmons (RM) about to pass 250 wickets, Damien Burrage (RM) personal best five catches, James Bracey and Craig Simmons (RM) set a new 7th wicket partnership record of 107, Mark Rice (MG) personal best 51 runs.

Preview: Rockingham Mandurah enjoyed a strong win over Gosnells in Round 5, while Midland Guildford slumped to 16th after another loss. While Midland Guildford are yet to win a match this season, they have provided a lot of heart and fight in each of their performances. That will need to be reproduced tenfold if they are to get over Craig Simmons, Dane Ugle and an impressive Mariners outfit.

Scarborough (4th) v Melville (9th) at Abbett Park East:
N Johnstone-A Khan
Scarborough: Nicholas Maiolo(c), Jacob Johnston, Jeremy Boyle, Liam Stevens, Luke McQuade, Liam Knight, Lance Morris, Josh Philippe, Samuel Moylan, Cody Rose, Andrew Tye, Edward Barnard
Melville: Sean Terry(c), Drew Porter, Ryan Duffield, Mark Turner, Brad Turner, Blake Reed, Fraser Hay, Tom Smith, Andrew Needham, Bryce Jackson, Mitchell Jackson

Milestones: Jacob Johnston (S) personal best 127 runs, Nicholas Maiolo (S) personal best 114 runs and scored his 5th century, Liam Knight (S) about to pass 1000 runs, Liam Stevens (S) personal best 5-69, Sean Terry (M) personal best 112 runs, Usman Qadir (M) personal best 5-59 on debut.

Preview: Scarborough impressed with a brilliant first innings victory over Perth in Round 5, while Melville also produced a solid batting performance in its win over Subiaco Floreat. Jacob Johnston and Nicholas Maiolo were electric with the bat for Scarborough, each scoring centuries as the Gulls chased down an enormous 336 to claim the win. The Storm will need to be at their best defensively if they are to overcome the new and improved Scarborough.

South Perth (13th) v Joondalup (15th) at Richardson Park 1:
Umpires: M Kovalevs-J Buscall
South Perth: Chris Chellew(c), Hugh Brown, Hilton Cartwright, Alex Bevilaqua, Braydon Meuleman, Brooke Guest, Tasman Harris, David Cleary, Darius D'Silva, Tom Banton, Brandon Guest, Michael Bailey
Joondalup: Jaron Morgan(c), Garrick Morgan, Clinton Hinchliffe, Jake Zsilinszky, Mitchell Dixon, Connor Thorn, Thomas Russell, Zak Birchall, Brayden Thompson, Liam Andrews, Harry Larmett
Milestones: Hilton Cartwright (SP) personal best 136 and scored his 4th century, Josh Inglis (J) scored his 7th century.
Preview: Both sides struggled to contain their opponents in Round 5, as South Perth fell to Claremont Nedlands, while Joondalup were defeated by University. Despite scoring 320 runs, South Perth could not restrain the Tigers’ lethal batting line up on a good wicket and will need to find a way to get its bowlers into the match against Joondalup’s explosive, but sometimes wayward batsmen. Alex Bevilaqua and Darius D’Silva loom as important cogs in this match.

University (2nd) v Claremont-Nedlands (1st) at James Oval:
D Trigg-C Pelpola
University: Matthew Birrell(c), Viv Paver, William Bosisto, David Moody, Christopher Sabburg, Mitchell Drennan, Rex Strickland, Josh Dallimore, Bailey Richards, Joshua Mason, Sean Stuart, Will Jacks, Corey Rocchiccioli
Claremont-Nedlands: Nicholas Hobson(c), Daniel Turkich, Jacob Whiteaker, Joel Paris, Haydan Morton, Tim David, Christopher Simpson, Thomas May, Bradley Hope, Jackson Edmondstone, Jamie Crawley

Milestones: Chris Sabburg (U) personal best 165 runs, Bailey Richards (U) personal best 5-32, Tim David (CN) passed 2000 runs with a personal best score of 183 in his 5th century, Brad Hope (CN) personal best score of 113, Matthew Kelly (CN) passed 100 wickets, Tim David and Brad Hope (CN) set a new 4th wicket partnership record of 296.

Preview: Both sides enjoyed tremendous wins in Round 5 after producing imposing scores with the bat. Chris Sabburg and Tim David have both been in terrific form and produced huge centuries and personal best scores for their respective sides last round. The Tigers’ depth in the batting line up looks dangerous in what is shaping up to be an epic rematch of last season’s Two-Day Grand Final. 

Willetton (5th) v Perth (6th) at Burrendah Oval 1:
T Rann-M Hall
Willetton: Cameron Bancroft(c), Kallen Bond, Chris Lagana, Brennan Wilson, Alex Hepburn, Simon Mackin, Aaron Hardie, Blair Walsh, Iszak Milentis, James Godfrey, Aaron McCall, Will Rhodes, D'Arcy Short
Perth: Luke Jury(c), Jacob Snadden, Josh Nicholas, Sean Roberts, Tom Scollay, Jack Baker, Jordan Mast, Joel Curtis, Kyle Gardiner, Liam Guthrie, Tom Casey

Milestones: Sean Brennan (W) about to pass 1000 runs, Jonathon Wells (P) scored his 5th century.

Preview: Willetton suffered a surprise loss to Bayswater Morley in Round 5, While Perth also suffered defeat at the hands of Scarborough. With Aaron Hardie and D’Arcy Short out for day one of this clash, due to Sheffield Shield and ODI selection respectively, Willetton need to find some assistance for Cameron Bancroft in its batting line up. On the other hand, Perth has had no trouble scoring big totals and just needs to find some support for Josh Nicholas, who has played a lone hand with the ball in recent weeks.
