RSL Colts have won plenty of night cricket and Mega Hit ti­tles over the years and on Fri­day night they un­veiled a host of next gen­er­a­tion names in red and white.

Colts opener Char­lie Kemp­ston smashed an un­beaten 101, rem­i­nis­cent of his dad Michael in his hey day! His in­nings en­sured a seven-wicket win in just 16 overs after Souths had set a target of 151.

The Mega Hit com­pe­ti­tion con­tin­ues through­out the sea­son with spec­ta­tors and play­ers keenly an­tic­i­pat­ing the open­ing of the new club­house ad­ja­cent to the grand­stand.

Mitch Bower blasted three fours and two sixes in his 31.

The hel­met hides the face of Jimmy Kuntze who played steadily for 24 in Souths’ to­tal of 7/154

Ex­pe­ri­enced all-rounder Mat Fin­lay blasted 33 from just 17 deliveries!

Um­pire Phil Leonard raises his arms to the ex­as­per­a­tion of bowler Alex Orth!

Ri­ley Keen grabbed 2/21 to in­clud­ing the key scalp of Souths for­mer Coun­try opener, Mitch Bower, for 31. Ex­pe­ri­enced Colts duo Chris Mor­ton (keep­ing) and Wes Gid­dings are ready to pounce on an edge. Um­pire Phil Leonard is keep­ing a close eye on the pace­man.

Keeper Chris Mor­ton lets this one slip through his gloves

Colts cel­e­brate the wicket of Bower, iron­i­cally, caught Mor­ton bowled Keen!
