A century by former skipper Josh Tuckwell and 87 to Liam Dalibozek in Kurri Weston's second grade total of 8/325 against Tenambit Morpeth has put the Kurri Weston first grade batting on notice that there is still plenty of depth at the club.
Tuckwell and Dalibozek have both cut back on their cricket commitments this season but may be getting a call from first grade skipper Tyler Power if the Warriors batsmen do not turn up this week after a disappointing 177 of which Power scored 109.
There were three centuries including Tuckwell's 124 scored on Saturday across the grades with Ryan Lacey scoring a match-winning 129 off just 95 balls for Raworth Rabbitohs against Tilligerry in B-grade.
Ramsey Vane-Wood also turned in a match-winning performance with his 104 helping Paterson get the points over Chris Dawe with 88 for Old Victoria in A-grade.
Eastern Suburbs young gun Tom Porter fell just three runs short of his debut grade century when he was run out for 97 in second grade against City United.
Porter is having a terrific season making 117 in under-16s against Wine Country back in October.
In other notable efforts with the bat, Robert Bartlett made 87 not out for Norths against Port Stephen in second grade and Jake Montgomery made 84 not out for Port in B-grade.
