ISIS CLUBS WIN BIG

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page - By MATTHEW MCIN­ER­NEY

THE man him­self reck­ons we shouldn’t read too much into it, but it is way too hard to go past Rod Jensen’s fig­ures from the week­end.

Jensen smashed 46 as he steered the mid­dle and lower or­der af­ter Rhett Pope and Graeme Bartlett starred (more be­low).

Once Isis White’s 40 overs were fi­nally up, the mer­ci­less squad had reached 9-297 – an im­pres­sive 7.425 runs per over.

Broth­ers White were cruis­ing un­til Matthew Mag­ner was dis­missed for 16.

They col­lapsed, fall­ing from 1-51 to all out for 75 as Bartlett and Jensen wreaked havoc.

Jensen fin­ished with the fine fig­ures of 4-6 from his four overs, while Bartlett took 4-10.

“They’re usu­ally a fa­ther-son team but they were stacked with un­der-16s this week,” Jensen said.

“They have bowl­ing re­stric­tions and be­cause some had al­ready bowled in other games, they had to have a big ro­ta­tion.”

The ro­ta­tion strat­egy was im­ple­mented sev­eral sea­sons ago in re­sponse to ju­nior pace bowlers suf­fer­ing stress frac­tures and other in­juries.

ON FIRE: Rod Jensen scored 46 and nabbed 4-6 with the ball, but he said we “couldn’t read too much” into his fig­ures given the op­po­si­tion.
