Hamish Starr is hoping starting to find his rhythm can help Kooringal Colts bring up their first win of the season.
Starr has made an impact with the bat, with scores of 42 and 57 split by a duck this season, but it's with the ball he's really hoping he can shine with at his new club.
The 21-year-old has five wickets from his three matches to his credit and is looking for more in an important clash with St Michaels at Harris Park on Saturday.
Especially after overcoming some no ball issues.
"The last couple of weeks I've probably been a batter who bowls but I'm definitely a bowler that bats," Starr said.
"I haven't bowled a front foot no-ball in three years and in that game against RSL I nearly bowled 10 but I wasn't struggling on the weekend with it at all so it must have been one of those weeks when I was trying too hard to get that win and just over stepped."
Starr was part of two National Championship campaigns in under 17s and under 19s and played grade cricket in Sydney before moving to Temora last year.
Looking to play at a higher standard once more he made the switch to Wagga but with Colts having their first two matches washed out he played for the Wagga Sloggers.
However he feels he's finding his feet with Kooringal.
"It's a bit different to Sydney but I've been enjoying it so far," Starr said.
"I finished last cricket in Temora but I always thought I'd come to Wagga as it is a bit better standard and I'm pretty competitive when it comes to sport."
He's hoping Colts can start to build some momentum with matches against St Michaels and Lake Albert before a clash with Wagga City leading into Christmas.
"On paper we see ourselves as a top-three team but just haven't had results go our way so far," Starr said.
"We're still backing ourselves at the back end of the year to be in finals."
Kooringal fell well short of unbeaten South Wagga's bumper total of 8-307 at Geoff Lawson Oval after being bowled out for 177.
After struggling to contain a fast start by the Blues, captain Keenan Hanigan is hoping to execute better up against a side one win above them on the ladder but in all important fourth spot.
"We haven't won a game all year and that has to start otherwise our season will slip away very quickly," Hanigan said.
"It starts with me as captain and I have to lead the boys and get up somehow.
"We just have to play a full game of cricket and I'm confident if we do we will get the win but it has to start this week."
Colts welcome back David Bolton, who scored a century in his last innings, Jayden Beattie and Marc Vincent to take on the Saints however in-form Andrew Dutton is unavailable this week.
