RUGBY Union have recorded a stunning six wicket victory over defending premiers Bathurst City to book their spot in the Bathurst District Cricket Association first grade final.
Four wicket hauls from both Jeremy Thackray and Ryan Peacock saw Redbacks rolled for 103 in the weekend’s major semi-final.
Bulldogs hunted down the target at Morse Park thanks to useful contributions throughout the order, the biggest coming from Peacock (24) and Jameel Qureshi (20 not out).
Meanwhile City Colts have survived another week of finals thanks to a memorable captain’s performance from Dan Casey at George Park.
Casey’s big knock of 140 guided Colts to a tally of 336 in the minor semi-final, before his four wickets with the ball limited opponents Centennials Bulls to 187 runs in their chase.
