Tigers, Bluebirds post strong wins



BIG scores from Jon Harris and Grant Collins saw CQU Tigers smash Norths for six in the their second Twenty20 game of the season at the Rockhampton Cricket Ground on Sunday afternoon.

The Tigers bowled Norths out for just 88 before Harris got the run chase off to a flying start, scoring 56 runs from 47 balls.

Collins overcame a slight hand injury to belt the Norths bowling attack for six on three occasions, scoring his half-century from just 22 balls.

Tigers ended the day at 4170, almost doubling their opponents' score.

Tigers coach James Parr said he was more than happy with the result.

"We all did our best to get them out and then we set ourselves a target of 150 and then we ended up 4-170,'' he said.

Parr said the new medium had taken off and the Tigers were looking forward to their next match in February.

"The intensity of it is just so different from anything else, it's brilliant to be a part of,'' he said.

"It's so quick you blink and it's over.''

Meanwhile, Bluebirds came out on top of Southside in the second match of the evening with a 27-run win.
