Corey Rut­gers of the West Pil­bara Cricket team has been se­lected for the coun­try week All Star team.

He was se­lected af­ter his out­stand­ing per­for­mance dur­ing the cricket se­nior coun­try week com­ple­tion where the West Pil­bara team were the un­ex­pected cham­pi­ons.

“Ev­ery­thing just clicked for me. I had a re­ally good week,” Rut­gers said.

“I hit a dou­ble-cen­tury, then a cen­tury and then 70-odd in the fi­nal as well.”

West Aus­tralian Cricket Asso- cia­tion’s coun­try cricket co-or­di­na­tor Tim Lees said the se­lec­tion to the coun­try week All Stars squad was a sig­nif­i­cant in­di­vid­ual award.

“Many of th­ese play­ers grad­u­ate into the WA Coun­try XI and Colts pro­gram as a re­sult of All Stars se­lec­tion,” he said.

Rut­gers said he is happy to be re­warded for his achieve­ments.

“It’s a bit of recog­ni­tion for a lot of hard work you put in on the train­ing field and all the ef­fort you put in, so its nice to be recog­nised for suc­ceed­ing ev­ery now and then,” he said.
