Lastly, I would like to wish young New Norfolk and Glenorchy cricketer in Tyler Benson a speedy recovery. An accident at training with the Glenorchy Cricket Club last week on Tuesday night that resulted in his lower jaw suffering two breaks.
Tyler has since had surgery to realign and plate his jaw and is now recovering at home.
We hope that this will just be a small setback as he looks to next season to get back on the field.
