Ghosts bats collapse in a heap once again

Winning the toss and electing to bat first might have seemed a good idea at the time, but Camden Campbelltown Ghosts will have a few regrets now. At stumps on day one of their round seven match with Bankstown, the young Ghosts are staring down the barrel of an outright defeat. They made just 132 runs off 45.5 overs, with a top score of 27 by Brock Larance, and another small contribution of 19 by allrounder Ben Patterson.

It had to be. Rock bottom. After the week in hell. And so it was. In the deep north of Australia. More than 2,000 kilometres from Balmain. Even more from Campbelltown. About 50 more, give or take. It was 20-0 after 20 minutes, but most Wests fans would have believedRead more »
