Good gracious me … a Hobart team turns up in Ballarat in the right month in the right year to play for the Cone Cup. Normally they are as unreliable as a Speaker’s taxi voucher. They even brought the Cone Cup with them … though it beats me how they got it past the x-rays and luggage checkers. Maybe they don’t expect Tasmanians wielding a large silver trophy to hijack the plane. Good on them we have only won the Cup once in the last ten years and then they forgot to bring it.

Hobart retains the Cone Cup 14 matches to 10.

Bruce Christie is judged Ballarat’s MVP with 4/4 and wins a HSU credit card to use wherever he sees fit. There is an honourable mention to Richie Robinson with 2/2. As usual Rob Jolly punishes his dodgy shoulder and hips ending up with a credible 4/6 record over both days. Congratulations to the Hobart quintet of Tony, Ray, Michael, Alex and Jeremy. Thanks for coming up and we hope our call to Jet Star warning them of cup wielding madmen returning to Tasmania was not taken as sour grapes.
