Nuna CC tops BHRDCA count for total premierships won

Here is a great article written by the BHRDCA summarising premierships won across the history of the association. It shows Nuna as 2nd in BHRDCA First XI premierships, despite not winning in Shield Grade for 30 years and as the most successful club from a total premierships perspective in the BHRDCA with 40 flags. The 2 flags this year are hopefully the start of a period of sustained success.

Hello David,

Rosenthal’s Ramblings…

A great end to the regular season with late wickets and runs securing, or costing, finals berths. Mac Shield was the tightest finish, at both ends, in living memory. Well done to all clubs and teams that have extended their season.

In a metropolitan cricket first, the McIntosh Shield GF will be streamed live through a dedicated link, with commentary, interviews and scores from around the grounds. This is really exciting and there are still a few sponsorship spots available, click here for details on how you can get involved.

I look forward to a great finals series, the inaugural President’s Lunch and the Presentation Night on April 4 to put a full stop on a very busy season.

After an extremely exciting lead up to the semi finals they are finally upon us. To all Clubs throughout the year thank-you for your hospitality it is much appreciated. I have been concentrating on the lower grades this year where cricket is just as important if not a little more relaxed, it has been wonderful catching up with people I have known for many years.

To Clubs participating in finals all the very best, let’s hope the weather holds out. We have had a great year with outstanding performances in all grades…read on


With the recent passing of Fred Watson I believe it is prudent that we reflect on his extraordinary contribution to cricket, especially involving the BHRDCA.

Fred started umpiring in 1946 at the age of 21, the reason for starting so young was that he was suspended by the Mitcham Cricket Club for failing to attend a final’s match the previous season. At the time Mitcham had two sides competing in the same grade, the second side made the finals but the higher rated first eleven missed out, so the decision was made to drop some seconds players and beef up the side with some of the first eleven, Fred didn’t agree with this and decided not to attend the game, thus his suspension.

I’m sure that every player and umpire involved in a game with Fred over the years could tell a story (mostly funny). Possibly the most photographed and reported umpire in history, there was always something being written about Fred in local and mainstream papers.

Fred’s contribution to cricket umpiring in the BHRDCA was 734 games, a record that will take a lot of beating, these games were consecutive, he never missed a game, at his passing he was 88 years of age.

Fred was awarded life membership to both the umpires and the BHRDCA, and also the commonwealth medal for his contribution to sport.

Rest in Peace. A life well lived.
