Ghosts bats fall in a heap

Ghosts bats fall in a heap

There was just one bright spot from the heavy defeat of Campbelltown Camden Ghosts at the hands of Western Suburbs on the weekend. Teenage leg spinner Tanveer Sangha picked up a total of eight wickets in the match, four from each innings, to confirm his status as a rising star of Australian cricket.

And that was even before a ball was bowled at Raby Sports Complex. The Ghosts won the game and… Read more »

Pat Richards key man for Wests

The song in grandma’s time said ‘‘you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone’’ and I have to admit that’s how I feel about Braith Anasta now. For most of the season a posse of Wests Tigers observers have been calling for Anasta’s head, because they felt he wasn’tRead more »
