South Wagga captain-coach Joel Robinson believes his team’s clash with Kooringal Colts hangs in the balance.
The Blues were bowled out for 188 last Saturday but the all-rounder is confident they’ve got enough runs on the board.
“At the start of the day if offered 180 or 190 you would take that at the Cricket Ground but with the position we were in you would have liked a few more,” Robinson said. “It’s definitely defendable.”
The Blues could move to top spot with a win, with St Michaels facing a big chase.
“They are obviously a good side, they didn’t start too well but have a pretty good draw coming into finals,” Robinson said.
“It’s a pretty big game for both teams.”
A 77 in the first day of the clash is expected to be Mick Mattingly’s last effort for the club.
After missing the start of the match due to a wedding Robinson comes in for him on Saturday and due to university commitments is not penciled in for a return.
Kooringal Colts also welcome back David Bolton, who is one man Robinson has his eye on.
