ORC captain Wayne Sellers knows he has the talent within his club to make a run towards the Bathurst District Cricket Association first grade grand final this season, but he also knows his Tigers will face stiff opposition.
In particular Sellers feels that the St Pat’s Old Boys outfit which currently tops the competition ladder will be hard to beat.
The Saints have lost just one game so far this season, their successes including a 67-run one-day win over the Tigers.
Connor Slattery took 5-26 off eight overs in that match after hitting 71, while fellow teenager Nic Broes put on 83 opening the batting and claimed three wickets.

It is the younger Saints, such as that pair, who have really impressed Sellers.
“Pat's look good, they've been impressive this year,” he said.
“Their juniors are incredible. They've got Benny Mitchell and Benny Parsons and even Nic Broes, it’s their juniors are who are going good for them.
“Some of their juniors, they bowl very fast.
“They are so confident. When I was that age I was too scared to say anything to anyone, but they just come out and give it to you, it's good.
“They're real good and they should go really good in the two-dayers I think.”
The competition resumes this Saturday.
