Pigeons on the fly

FLAG favourite Rand will be looking to complete a dream first-half of the Brocklesby and District season by toppling Burrumbuttock at Rand today.

After five wins and a washout, the Pigeons have raced clear of the pack and skipper James Kreutzberger looks well placed to take his charges into the harvest break with a clean sheet.

The batting of Ryan Kirkwood, Kreutzberger and Bryce Swift has been pivotal.

They sit in the association’s top-eight runscorers while Daniel Lieschke is leading the way with the ball with six wickets from three matches.

Burrumbuttock played well to defeat Walla last weekend, but Rand shapes as a tough proposition.

Balldale hosts Oaklands and Walla has the bye.
