Subiaco Floreat: Christopher Hansberry(c), Kiran Prashanth, Anthony Murphy, Calum How, Aaron Lilly, Andrew Holder, Tim Monteleone, Geremy Fatouros, Jack Retallack, Michael Hart, Lucas Martin
Milestones: Ashley Jeffery (BM) personal best 5-38 and second five-wicket haul, Chris Hansberry (SF) about to pass 5000 runs
Bayswater Morley and Subiaco Floreat both claimed victories in Round 7, defeating Mount Lawley and Fremantle respectively. In what promises to be a tough match, the Bears will need to find more input from their batsmen, having relied too heavily on its bowlers against Mount Lawley, while the Lions will look to continue their terrific mid-season form.
Fremantle (13th) v Claremont-Nedlands (1st) at Stevens Reserve West:
Umpires: A Micenko-R Garlett
Fremantle: Brayden Sutton(c), Ross Macauley, Daniel Kennedy, Matthew Micale, Anthony Collova, Chris Davenport, Liam Dallimore, Jarryd McPhee, Kaiden Cookson, Zach Ferris, Jamie Heath
Claremont-Nedlands: Chris Brabazon(c), James Allenby, Jacob Whiteaker, Nicholas Hobson, Paul Donaldson, Haydan Morton, Tim David, Chad Hitchcock, Christopher Simpson, Cameron Steel, Elliot Hitchen
Milestones: Daniel Turkich (CN) about to pass 300 wickets.
Ladder-leaders Claremont Nedlands continued its amazing season with another victory, this time over Melville, while Fremantle suffered a heavy loss to Subiaco Floreat. If Fremantle are to have a chance of winning this match, it will need a polished performance from its bowling attack with early wickets and tight lines to keep the Tigers’ batsmen to a small total.
Joondalup (9th) v Perth (7th) at Iluka Sports Complex 1:
Umpires: J Taylor-J Paterson
Joondalup: Michael Johnson(c), Josh Anderson, Tim Zsilinsky, Jaron Morgan, Garrick Morgan, Jake Zsilinsky, Harry Larmett, Andrew South, Clinton Hinchliffe, Tawera Waru, Brayden Thompson, Josh Inglis
Perth: Luke Jury(c), Jacob Snadden, Josh Nicholas, Jacob Van Galen, Sean Roberts, Aidan Enright, Jonathan Wells, Liam Guthrie, Kyle Gardiner, Dain Moreton, Adam Wheater
Milestones: Garrick Morgan (J) passed 3000 runs and personal best 195 in his third century, Tim Zsilinsky (J) 122 on debut and is the third player from Joondalup to score a century on debut (19th overall), Michael Johnson (J)is about to pass 300 catches.
Joondalup enjoyed a marvellous win over Scarborough after huge centuries to Garrick Morgan (195) and Tim Zsilinsky (122 on debut), while Perth just scraped over the line by four runs against South Perth. Both sides look to be in fine form with bat and ball, so it will be a matter of who makes the most of their opportunities when they come. The Morgan brothers and Tim Zsilinsky will be the danger men for Joondalup.
Midland-Guildford (11th) v Gosnells (12th) at Lilac Hill 1:
Umpires: J Sherry-J Buscall
Midland-Guildford: Dominic Sibley(c), Corry Verco, Ashley Mucciarone, Adam Faulkner, Jack Baker, Keaton Critchell, Jordan Mast, Hayden Cobley, James Kirwan, Julian Crudeli, Austin Thomas
Gosnells: Matthew Leipold(c), Timothy Hale, Ben Green, Jonathon Crowe, David Roberts, Brandon Jacobs, Ryan James-Buckley, Aaron Keverne-Onyon, Jeremy McFarlane, Chris Prescott, Jaxom Rose
Milestones: Adam Faulkner (MG) personal best five catches, Brandon Jacobs (G) personal best 63.
Midland Guildford lost a tight match against University in Round 7, while Gosnells suffered a massive first innings loss to Willetton. Gosnells will need a more consistent batting effort if they are to avoid another huge first innings loss.
Rockingham-Mandurah (10th) v Melville (6th) at Lark Hill 1:
Umpires: L Lindsay-D Trigg
Rockingham-Mandurah: Nick Willis(c), Vincent Poller, Ed Pollock, Kane Standing, Aaron Burrage, Nathan Hutchison, Eric Botha, Jordan Clark, Matthew France, Joel Marion, Ryan Done
Melville: Luke Towers(c), Thomas Kerr-Sheppard, Matthew Wiley, Matthew Bowdler, Ryan Duffield, Mark Turner, Brad Turner, Tom Scollay, Blake Reed, Fraser Hay, Peter Rowe
Milestones: Ed Pollock (RM) personal best 91, Nick Willis (RM) personal best 79.
Melville will be looking to bounce back following a tough loss to Claremont Nedlands in Round 7, while Rockingham Mandurah enjoyed a big first innings win over Wanneroo. Melville needs to find its tough edge with the bat after three weeks of patchy form to avoid slipping out of the top six.
South Perth (4th) v Mount Lawley (14th) at Richardson Park 2:
Umpires: D Gibbons-C Pelpola
South Perth: Chris Chellew(c), Michael Bailey, Simon Ringrose, Brandon Guest, Braydon Meuleman, Brooke Guest, Darius D'Silva, Robert Jones, Jackson Edmondstone, Alex Bevilaqua, Jordan Korol, Hilton Cartwright
Mount Lawley: Shane Rakich(c), Tom Beaton, Jay Chislett, Tristan Hobley, Mohamed Ijaz, Justin Kandiah, James Newnham, Ethan Petta, Liam Purdy, Dylan Sharman, Matthew Taylor, Michael Klinger
Milestones: Braydon Meuleman (SP) personal best 70.
Both sides suffered defeats in Round 7, with South Perth losing in dramatic fashion to Perth by four runs and Mount Lawley falling to Bayswater Morley. The Mount Lawley Hawks will need a much-improved effort with the bat if they are to avoid another big defeat which could come through the inclusion of Michael Klinger. Alex Bevilaqua (SP) will look to be a threat with bat and ball throughout this match.
Wanneroo (16th) v University (3rd) at Kingsway Sports Ground 1:
Umpires: M Hall-D Skinn
Wanneroo: Christian Smith(c), Robert Fairchild, Kyle Millar, Jack Cattrall, Mitchell McGee, Jordon King, Jacob Johnston, Dylan Banks, Mathew Dzodzos, Nick Barr, Matthew Spoors, Max Holden
University: William Bosisto(c), Matthew Birrell, Viv Paver, Brendan Murray, Ashton Agar, Mitchell Drennan, Rex Strickland, Josh Dallimore, Sean Stuart, George Bartlett
Milestones: Josh Dallimore (U) took his third five-wicket haul.
Wanneroo lost its sixth match in a row in Round 7, falling to Rockingham Mandurah in the first innings, while University won a hard-fought contest against Midland-Guildford. The Roos need to improve all aspects of their game if they are to lift themselves from the bottom of the ladder. They will also need to be weary of Josh Dallimore, who has been in sensational form with the ball.
Willetton (5th) v Scarborough (15th) at Burrendah Reserve 1:
Umpires: T Rann-F Davis
Willetton: Kallen Bond(c), Stuart Biss, Brett Bayley, James Godfrey, Brennan Wilson, Prad Gunaratne, Ross Knoll, Matthew Hanna, Aaron Hardie, Iszak Milentis, Will Rhodes, Kris Elliot
Scarborough: Andrew Rule(c), Jeremy Boyle, Liam Stevens, Liam Knight, Lochie Hardy, Lance Morris, Josh Philippe, Cody Rose, Nicholas Maiolo, Ryan Knight, Wesley Robinson, Samuel Moylan, Sean Costello
Milestones: Will Rhodes (W) personal best 59, Brett Bayley (W) took a hat-trick (the second Willetton player to do so) and finished with his fourth five-wicket haul, Josh Philippe (S) passed 1000 runs.
Willetton enjoyed a huge first innings win over Gosnells, while Scarborough suffered a significant loss to Joondalup. Scarborough need to find a way to score runs heavily if they are to avoid another bad loss. Matt Hanna and Brett Bayley have been in blistering form for Willetton and will be looking for another big haul of wickets.
