RENMARK North and Loxton
will face off in the Riverland
Turf Cricket Association (RTCA)
A grade grand final tomorrow
afternoon in Renmark.
In just its first year in the RTCA,
Renmark North finished minor pre-
miers after a tie in the final round
against Loxton, meaning it won a
direct route to the decider.
Defending premiers Loxton on
the other hand had to do it the hard
way, as they were forced to face
Berri in the preliminary final.
In their three clashes during
the season, the honours were split
evenly, with both sides claiming a
win, as well as the tie in the final
Two of the key men for Loxton
with the bat will be Brad Walter,
who finished on top of the run
scoring leader board for the sea-
son with 502 runs at an average
of 71.71, and young gun Will
Gutsche, who has chalked up 361
runs at an average of 51.57.
Ben Townsend and Ben Files
will be important with the bat for
Renmark North, having scored 376
and 233 runs respectively this sea-
Loxton’s Ryan Smith and
Renmark North’s Roley Boon will
play a vital role with the ball in the
season finale having taken 15 and
13 wickets this season respectively.
Renmark North captain Liam
Jackson said it was a positive sign
for the club to reach the grand final
in its first season in the competi-
“It is very special to be playing
in a grand final,” he said.
“It was the plan coming into the
year but obviously anything can
“It would have been hard to
imagine in our first year in the
competition to be playing off in an
A grade grand final.
“It was always the dream, but for
it to actually happen is great for the
club and all of the work everyone
has put in this year.”
Jackson said the tie against
Loxton in the final round was an
“I don’t think many of us had
ever played in a tie before that
game,” he said.
“It turned out it was a good time
for that to happen.”
Jackson said the mood at the
club had been positive over the
“Everyone is pretty excited to
have a crack this weekend,” he
“We have got a pretty good bal-
ance of older and younger guys in
Jackson said Loxton would pro-
vide his men with a tough chal-
lenge on tomorrow.
“They don’t really have many
weaknesses,” he said.
“Their top order is full of plenty
of talent so if we can take a few
early wickets we will be in with a
“Early wickets can give you
good momentum with the ball and
anything is possible in finals.”
Loxton captain Rhett Colls said
it was pleasing to win through to
the big game.
“Yeah it was nice to get the job
done in the prelim final against
Berri,” he said.
“We have been in a lot of grand
finals lately so it’s nice to keep
that run going and get into another
Colls said the vibe among the
playing group has been positive.
“To be honest we are all pretty
calm,” he said.
“The tie that we had against
Renmark North in the last game
wake-up call and the boys have
been training well and are ready to
go this time.”
Colls believes being reigning
premiers was no extra burden.
“I don’t think there is added
pressure,” he said.
“We finished second on the lad-
der so I think there will be more
pressure on them to be honest.”
Colls said the similarities
between the sides will make it a
“I think they are very similar to
us,” she said.
“They bat very deep and they
have a lot of good, tight bowlers.”
Colls said while Loxton’s top
order has performed well this sea-
son, the middle order will need to
produce if his team is to claim its
second premiership in a row.
“Our top four batsmen have been
great all season for us,” he said.
“But we know that we will need
our middle order to step up if we
want to win on Saturday.”
The game will begin at 1pm and
will be played at the Renmark turf
