A record crowd od 49882 saw King Whamos unbeaten run in competetive OD matches come to an end. The run lasted an impressive 16 games having not been beaten since week 2 of season 19. 2 tied matches and 14 wins followed, but Pocket Rocket brought that run to an end with an impressive win on Friday.
Whamo now need to put together a similar run to put their promotion chase back on track. Captain Lovatt took a philosophical approach after the game, ‘Now is a test of our bouncebackability. We were beaten by a good team and Childs was the difference on the day. But everyone now needs to up their game to get us back at the top end of the table’.
