The side, which will play open- ing T20 games against Onslow (11am) and Karori (3pm) on arti- ficial wickets at Trentham Mem- orial Park, won promotion from the next tier Hazlett Trophy fol- lowing their unbeaten 2010-11 season. Upper Hutt, which replaces a relegated Hutt Districts, will again be captained by Leighton Morgan, who returned to his old club a year ago after several seasons of first-class cricket for Otago. His player reserves will be almost identical to the successful 2010-11 mix which played attack- ing cricket in all three forms of the game in the Wellington compet- ition. The well-performed all- rounders Matt Taylor -- a Welling- ton age-grade representative -- and Jason McKenzie look likely to be the new ball attack with early season fitness issues for Shane Brocklebank and Daniel Hender- son a factor in the side's buildup. McKenzie was both reborn and a revelation last year after being thrust into the opening role and taking 50 wickets, 10 more than anyone in the Hazlett play. Morgan, who gathered 784 runs at 49 in the top order, will be look- ing to anchor a batting line which will look for plenty from the impressive Taylor and the fast- scoring wicketkeeper batsman Daniel Van der Hayden. One new face is 18-year old off- spinner Morgan Lamont who has impressed in the side's pre-season T20 games while there is antici- pation about the November arrival of Ollie Newton, an Otago bowling all rounder. We were unbeaten last year and that doesn't happen vey often,'' Morgan says. Moving back to the Pearce is going to be a challenge but I know all the guys are lookng forward to it and the opportunity is there for the guys to test themselves, to get better. It will be a big season.'' Upper Hutt, which again has- MEGA Mitre 10 as principal spon- sor, will field the same number of teams as last year when they took take out the Hutt Valley Club Championship. The side's base at Barton Oval will again host Wellington Blaze and representative age grade games in 2011-12. The Upper Hutt squad is Leigh- ton Morgan (captain) , Shane Brocklebank, Llewy Davidson- Powell, Jason McKenzie, Matt Taylor, Daniel Van der Hayden, Nick Press, Daniel Henderson, Micheal Billmore, Andrew Mchew, Josh Stewart, Greg Webber, Tom Pere and Morgan Lamont. Cory man of the moment High flier: Cory Jane battles for possession in the air in Sunday's Rugby World Cup semi-final win over Australia. The Upper Hutt player was man of the match. Photo: DEAN PEMBERTON By COLIN WILLIAMS Four days from now Cory Jane will play his part in the Rugby World Cup final and rightfully stake his place in New Zealand rugby legend, forever. Upper Hutt's man of the moment (and the world cup semi- final's man-of-the-match) has delivered the goods when it mattered most, in the compe- tition's knock-out phases. Coming off a controversial social sin-binning'', the always- newsworthy 28-year-old Jane was a stand-out in a team of cham- pions in Sunday's emphatic 20-6 dispatching of Australia, to follow another eye-catching effort in the All Blacks' quarterfinal win over Argentina. The city's first world cup player ever, Jane was also classy against the French in pool play, scoring his only tournament try against opposition nobody considered they would be lining up against in the final. Jane is a superb attacking player, but his semifinal heroics were mainly for his airborne defensive skills as he dealt with high ball after high ball with accu- racy, calm and blood smeared bravery. Whatever intel the Aussie strategists'' had, it was wrong, misguided and counter- productive. The rest of Jane's game was class too. He has a sharp attack- ing edge, keeps the ball alive at all times and is a reliable and intelli- gent defender. An All Black since 2008, Jane's 31st run in the silver fern was a memorable affair. Roll on Sunday, roll on history.
