Firstly, congratulations on winning the election in March, and becoming the new Labor premier.

Last Saturday saw grand final cricket action across all grades on the Far North Coast with Tintenbar-East Ballina (TEB) winning third grade, but losing the second grade match after rain stopped play.

TEB were sent in to bat by Byron Bay and they took advantage reaching 5/245.

Opener Nathan Clement made 103 not out, supported by Reuben Saric’s 38, and skipper Ben Crawford’s 33, 

Byron’s best bowlers were Brendan Mitchell, 1/32 and Laura Box 1/47.

Byron lost early wickets as TEB took all their chances. Byron’s Doug Jarvis led the way with 34 and a counter attacking Oscar Jarvis, was next best with 29. Byron were bowled out for 133 and TEB claimed minor and major premierships for 2022/23.  


In second grade Cudgen Hornets choose to bat and put on a steady 7/191 on the back of Callum Prichard’s 61 and Harrison Hall’s 49.

TEB’s David Dirou returned 3/36 off eight overs.

In reply TEB were at 5/114 with 13 overs to play. Kai Dalli was on 41 no (43 balls) and David Dirou 11 no (11 balls) as heavy rain stopped play.

Umpires determined via the Duckworth Lewis System that TEB were behind by 11 and had lost the game.


Goonellabah Workers (GWS) also secured the LJ Hooker minor and major premierships for the season after they beat Cudgen in their final.

GWS won the toss and batted first and by the last innings of a low scoring two-day match, had set Cudgen a target of 140 to win.

Cudgen fell for 97 and handed the silverware to GWS.

Cudgen’s James Julius collected ten wickets for the match (7/32 and 3/54) and Anthony Kershler nabbed 5/47 in the second innings.

GWS batter Kale Hare adapted best to the conditions, top scoring in both his innings with 38 and 60.
