The Rip Starters have played big hitting cricket to go to the top of the Byron Bay twilight cricket ladder, but there is plenty of competition for the minor standings as the season’s halfway mark approaches.

The Rip Starters are undefeated after five starts and have posted the competition’s top score of 160 from 16 overs.

TNR sit in second place while Off the Rails and Eureka Grass are one point behind.

The Bowlo and the Kronix Parkies sit above the Loafers and Rugby, who each have one win.

Rugby tried to change that last Monday when they took on Eureka Grass, but were sent into field and let the openers get off to an 11 run per over start.

Eureka’s Adam (31 no) and Sam (25) scored boundaries early and were ably supported by Tim Stokes (31 no).

Rich (15) and Steve (12) also chimed in to get the side to a total of 138.

Rugby’s best bowlers included Connor (2/10) and Jack (2/21).

In reply Brady (31 no) and Connor (25) got the team off to a flyer and were on track with 80 runs after eight of their 16 overs.

But wickets began to fall and a golden duck to Larso saw a big drop in momentum for the Rugby boys. A late charge by George (14 no) and Joelby (31 no) got them close, but ultimately they fell short by 13 runs.
