Cricketers in dominating form
Southland representatives Jason Domigan and Rhuebyn Prattley have emerged as the standout individuals at the completion of round one of Southland's senior club cricket one-day competition.
Domigan and Prattley are the only players to feature in both the top 10 batting and top 10 bowling standings compiled by Southland Cricket Association stats man Mark Hamilton.
Invercargill-Old Boys captain Jason Domigan has been particularly impressive with the bat.
In his five innings to date he has scored 259 runs and has been dismissed just twice.
On top of this he has take seven wickets with the ball at just 17.71 runs per wicket and again looms as an important figure in Southland's Hawke Cup campaign.
Prattley sits just behind Domigan in the run scoring stakes scoring 205 runs in his four innings, which included a knock of 120 against Invercargill-Old Boys.
Like Domigan he too has also taken seven wickets with the ball.
A further Southland representative has put his hand up in the first stage of the Southland club season with spinner Michael Grattan leading the way with the ball.
The Albion skipper has taken 12 wickets edging out team-mate Grant Gutschlag and another spinner in Metro's James crisp who have 11 wickets each.
The Southland club cricket season will switch on Saturday from the One-Day competition to the Declaration series.
The Declaration format is a 110 over game where the team batting first can bat a maximum of 58 overs.
A draw can be obtained if a team batting second does not reach the required target but is not bowled out by the end of the days play.
Each team will play each other once with the team on the most points at the end of the round-robin series the winner.
The second round of the one-day competition starts on February 1.
