WACA Premier Cricket: Rockingham-Mandurah no match for Claremont-Nedlands

ROCKINGHAM-Mandurah found the step up in class too much as Claremont-Nedlands showed why they are the only undefeated side in WACA Premier Cricket.

At Cresswell Park, the Tigers did not relent in making 368, responding to Rockingham-Mandurah’s respectable 254 on day one.

Adam France (1-62) claimed a wicket without the home side adding to their stumps score of 0-42 and when Joel Marion bowled former Mariner Jacob Whiteaker at 3-95, the game was up for grabs.

Claremont-Nedlands found partnerships of 68 for the fourth wicket and 93 for the sixth wicket to overtake the target before pushing their premiership claims with a fifth straight win to start the season.

Jordan Clark highlighted his potential with 4-93 from 21 overs while Joel Marion gave a spirited performance of 1-49 from 20 overs on a day the opposition went at over three and a half runs per over.
