Weekend Result

No stars! No Mugs! That was the attitude from our Premier Reserve side yesterday when they beat Karori in a nail biter.

When Karori were 123/0 after 27 overs it looked all over for Taita as they tried to defend 232, but the lads put a lot of pressure on them and came through on top. 

This win puts them top of the table!

What the scorecard doesn't show is the outstanding death bowling by Andy Smith and Tim Brown
