First XI 2016

These are the final Standings and Round Results of the 2016 season for the First XI. With the loss of our senior players from last year, the team went through a bit of a rebuilding phase this year. They finished the first part of the competition in 5th place, resigning them to the Minor competition for the latter half of the year, which they won. After a poor start to the season, they showed some real fighting spirit in winning their pool of NZSS 1st XI Cup regional tournament and had a relatively easy win in the final against Wellington College.

The team had a very good preparation for the second half of the season in Brisbane in September. Winning all 5 of their one day games. Sadly, Wellington playing conditions and the fact that they were playing in the bottom 6 of the Premier competition did not help in preparing the team for the NZSS 1st XI Cup finals in Lincoln, where the team struggled against most of the opposing teams. Finishing at the bottom of the table for that tournament after winning it in the previous year.

Things are looking bright for 2017 however, with the bulk of the 2016 squad returning. Tyler Simpson (captain), Matty McComb and Joe Foote will be hard to replace, but we should see dividends from the experience gained by our younger players in this tough, rebuilding year.
