Given that I have written a few things about cricket recently, I’ve decided to keep tabs on ex Comet players around the country and update this as much as possible for the readership.
And so let us look at what happened over the last weekend.
Firstly we had the Tasmania versus QLD at the Gabba. QLD won the toss and sent the Apple islanders in to bat on a seaming deck and knocked them over for 211 in which Dave dawson topscored with a very well compiled 55. QLD snuck in to win by two wickets.

Meanwhile, at the picturesque Bankstown oval, home to the Wuagh Brothers and Jeff Thompson and Lennie Pascoe, South Australia posted a respectable 245 with Mark Higgs, ex comet and Queanbeyan player, scoring only 10. In reply NSW scored the winning runs off the penultimate ball of the match with Brad Haddin also disappointing, scoring only 13.
Other ex Canberra players such as Jack Smith and Darren McNees have yet to play a game in the top tier of Australian cricket this season.
