Down to four - who is grand final bound?

Down to four - who is grand final bound?

It took until the conclusion of the final round to determine the finalists in the Bairnsdale Cricket Association, but now they have been decided the premier still looks difficult to identify.
West Bairnsdale and Lindenow South Glenaladale will clash in one semi final at the Bairnsdale Oval, with the competition's inform outfit, St Mary's Nagle, hosting Meerlieu in the other.
West and the Bulls look evenly matched, both looking to grind out a win on a lifeless track that has been a graveyard for batsmen this summer.
West will go into the game full of confidence having withstood a determined Lakes Entrance last Saturday, while the Bulls have struggled since Christmas, registering only two victories after looking unbeatable prior to the break.
The Saints' bowling attack has no equal and oozes class, but it will need to be on song if the Tussocks batters come ready to play. They have the best top six of the finals sides, led by captain Rohan Blandford who has had a stunning season.
The Saints batting can be fragile at times, however they may not need many runs on the board with captain Ricky Tatnell leading a fierce seam attack.
