Border Bash a big success

A Thurgoona dad's headed to the tattoo parlour today, getting a second piece of body art to commemorate Shane Watson's career after running into his hero at yesterday’s Border Bash.

Brendan Hynes flashed the former Aussie captain his tramp stamp – which reads ‘Watto’ and was done in relation to a bet over the star's performance at the crease.

Hynes says he'll take the needle to Watson's signature, which he signed above his current ink.

Meantime, cricket reps have named the comp at Lavington Sports Ground a win for the sport and the region.

Cricket New South Wales' Robbie Mackinlay says the players had an audience which surpassed that of an international test between Oz and New Zealand in Canberra last week.

Sydney Thunder walked away with the most wins during their clashes.

Their WBBL side claiming the first victory of the day over Melbourne,  2 for 121.

The Stars B Grade men hit back though, taking them down 8 for 150.

But the headline game was also in the Thunder’s favour, defeating their competitors in 2 wickets.
