Cricket Haisman | Tatura father and son set to share first game together

By Aydin Payne

Tomorrow is set to be a special day for one Tatura family, with Peter Watt to play alongside his son Nick in what will be their first Haisman Shield game together.

The two Watts will share the memorable occasion at Tatura's home Howley Oval deck against the Northerners.

“Pete gets a chance to play his first A-grade game alongside his son, which is great to see,” Tatura captain Michael Archer said.

“It's going to be pretty special for the two of them.

“Hopefully we can top it off with a win.”

Watt - a stalwart of the Tatura Cricket Club - makes is way into the A-grade line-up following the collision between import Connor Davies and Raj Singh.

Archer said Davies would sit this week out, while Singh was back at training on Tuesday night steaming in.

“Connor is another week on the sidelines, but Raj is right to go this week,” he said.

“We'll have Pete come in and we know what to expect from him, he's such a quality player.”

Tomorrow is looming as an important second round match for Northerners, following their loss to Kyabram in round one.

After being sent in to bat, the Jets were rolled for 107 from 36.4 overs.

Although the Jets' talented line-up was unable to fire, Archer expected them to bounce back strongly.

“We know Northerners have some very talented batsmen and we are going to have to play well (tomorrow),” Archer said.

“We need to be on from the get-go and get on top of them early.”
