WODONGA skipper Robbie Jackson has had, by his own admission, a disappointing season with the bat.
But after scoring his second century, in as many weeks, against Tallangatta at Rowan Oval on Saturday the master batsman is doing everything in his power to finish as strongly as possible.
Jackson rocketed to fifth on the CAW’s run aggregate by making 106 against the Bushies and said it was a good feeling to be back among the runs.
He now has a respectable 386 for the season.
“It was good to get a few,” Jackson said.
“We did OK making 245.
“The wicket was really good, but the outfield was a bit slow and lush and we put a reasonable score on the board.
“We looked like pushing up to 280 or 290 at one stage before we then lost a few wickets in the end.
“They have a really good attack and you earn every run you make against them.”
Wodonga openers Matt Dalbosco and Bryce Garvey withstood an early barrage from Tallangatta attack to take the score to 37 before Paul Coughlin made the breakthrough and the wickets started to tumble.
Jackson was the rock with help from Andrew Berg who made a valuable 40.
Tallangatta veteran Andrew Lade was at his dangerous best with 4-53 with support from Coughlin (3-38).
