Saints’ 1st XI coach Gregg Hobson chats about Zim success

28 September 2017 – The Saint Andrew’s victory in the Saint John’s College Rams T20 Cricket Festival was the first in six visits to Zimbabwe for the team under coach Gregg Hobson. When they finally broke through, however, it was the most comprehensive run through the tournament any team has ever had.

Saints always plays the tournament without matric boys, which means they have fewer resources and less experienced players to choose from compared to the other competing schools, but that made little difference this time around.

Reflecting on his charges’ handsome performances, coach Gregg Hobson, back home in Bloemfontein, said on Wednesday: “I think if people look at the results, they might think the standard of the competition is not that great. We’ve been there six times and the standard of the competition is as good as it has always been.

The winning team and coaches: Back: Brett Hall, Brendon Horwitz, JD Bruwer, Gerald Coetzee, Garnett Tarr, Gerrit Badenhorst, Rikus Allen, Ruan Cronjé, Gregg Hobson, front: Calvin Flanegan, Henré Koekemoer, Corné Viljoen, Reece van Staden, Nathan van der Nest, Tristan Wylie
