Rovers United Bruck has posted one of the biggest scores of the past decade.

Rovers hammered City Colts’ attack for 379 runs from 74 overs.

Vance Curran was cruelly dismissed on 99, while Jacob Schonafinger (65) and Jordan Blades (59) were one of five players to pass 40.

It’s the biggest total in the club’s three-year merged history.

“Rovers United made 400-plus against Corowa in 2007, while Bruck scored 400-plus, probably around 2010-11,” Schonafinger said.

“Now, if you get 250, that’s a mammoth score.”

Curran was caught in the covers trying to hit the ball over the top.

“He didn’t know (he was on 99), I was batting with him at the time, so I would love to have told him,” Schonafinger said.

Elsewhere, 15 wickets fell for 83 runs from 62 overs at Greta.
