Rinke to rein in Rudolph

SCARBOROUGH will be looking to rein in Jacques Rudolph’s brother when they host Rotherham in the Yorkshire League tomorrow.

Gerhardus Rudolph has been in fine form for the South Yorkshire club this season, scoring 490 runs in eight innings.

Skipper Piet Rinke is confident that his side can not only keep Rudolph under wraps, but he will also be looking for the points as Scarborough aim to continue pushing for the top few places.

Rinke will be without both Kunwar Bansil and Tom Precious, but there are ready-made replacements in Anthony Hunter and Sam Hills.

The skipper said: “Rotherham are a good, gritty side, who have a couple of first-class players and Jacques Rudolph’s younger brother, who has scored a lot of runs.

“We are going well at the moment though, Jack Holt is bowling well, Ash Lyth and Simon Tennant are also causing teams a lot of problems as well.

“The structure is working perfectly at the moment. The second team and third team are performing well, so we always have replacements that are able to step in if we are missing a player or two.”
