Great weekend at Coffs earns state selection for cricketers
FOUR Far North Coast cricketers have been named in the NSW Country Colts merit squad after North Coast won the competition in Coffs Harbour at the weekend.
Captain Nick De Giusti, Tobyn Burvill, Nathanael Scott and Caleb Ziebell were all standouts in the Under-19 carnival.
They helped lead North Coast to its first win in the Colts carnival since the 1992-93 season.
De Giusti has been in red-hot form with back-to-back centuries in FNC Under-19 interdistrict this month.
He carried that form into the Colts carnival, scoring 68 in the final against Central North.
Teammate Brendan Cleaver made 64 to help lead the team to a total of 9-241 from its 50 overs.
Central North was dismissed for 200 in reply, with De Giusti named player of the final.
