Saints strive for a consistent effort

St Michaels are yet to win a match this season and things don’t get any easier as they prepare to take on undefeated South Wagga.

Kuldeep Pegu has been St Michaels' best performer with the bat this season.

Last year’s grand finalists have lost three matches and captain-coach Ryan Forsyth is looking to make sure they make the most of any opportunities presented.

“You can't just have a good start when you put yourselves into a position to take the game by the scruff of the neck,” Forsyth said. 

“We haven’t capitalised and haven’t had those instincts needed to win games in an even comp.

“It was the perfect example on the weekend, we made a solid start with a great platform to build on and we just didn’t get anywhere from that, which is really disappointing.”

Kuldeep Pegu put the Saints in a strong position in the grand final rematch against Lake Albert last week.

He made 72 to help the Saints to 1-94 before they slumped to be all out for 148 in the six-wicket loss.

Forsyth wants more consistency.

“We are not expecting it to get any easier but I think it is just a matter of a consistent performance across the board,” he said. “In the two first games were we lacking a bit in the field and with the ball and this time around we were probably a bit better with the ball and just didn’t capitalise on our opportunities with the bat.”
