Aces keep same 12 for semi

Aces keep same 12 for semi

It will be the same 12 men for the Aces when they face the Canterbury Wizards in the Ford Trophy semi-final tomorrow in Hamilton.

The last round didn't go according to plan for the Aces as they fell to a six wicket loss to the Volts but other results meant they held on to their number one spot and retained a second life for the semi-final playoffs.

With the winner of tomorrow's game advancing straight to the final and having a week to rest and prepare for that match there is plenty of incentive for the Aces to book their passage against Canterbury.

Although a loss coming in to a playoff game might not sound like good preparation Aces coach Matt Horne believes it was no bad thing for his team.

"It's probably worked out pretty well for us actually. I think the guys realise that we didn't play well enough in that last game and our batting especially wasn't up to scratch. But I think that's given everyone a wake-up before the game tomorrrow and reminded us of the kind of performace required to win."
The 12 from which a team will be named for tomorrow's game in Hamilton starting at 10.30am is as follows:


Gareth Hopkins (Captain) (Parnell)
Michael Bates (Suburbs New Lynn)
Craig Cachopa (Takapuna)
Colin de Grandhomme (Howick Pakuranga)
Donovan Grobbelaar (Howick Pakuranga)
Dusan Hakaraia (Grafton United)
Anaru Kitchen (Waitakere City)
Tim McIntosh (Parnell)
Chris Martin (Parnell)
Kyle Mills (Howick Pakuranga)
Colin Munro (Howick Pakuranga)
Bhupinder Singh (Papatoetoe)

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
