It's been some start to the season for West Wimmera's Nathan Alexander.
The all-rounder is currently the competition's joint top wicket-taker, and thanks to a blistering century against Jung Tigers at the weekend has rocketed to the top of the batting ranks for good measure.
With 11 wickets, at an average of 9.45, and 179 runs to his name after just five games, Alexander's class is evident.
Unfortunately for the rest of HCA, it seems the Warrior is just warming up.
A change of scenery has done wonders for Tony Caccaviello.
Noradjuha-Toolondo's tearaway quick leads the competition with 11 wickets, at a fearsome 6.64.
Remarkably, nearly a third of the opening bowler's overs this season have been maidens as well.
Nathan Alexander also shares 11 wickets, with a congested pack not too far behind the two early leaders.
Tony Caccaviello (Noradjuha-Toolondo) - 11 at 6.64
Nathan Alexander (West Wimmera) - 11 at 9.45
Chaminda Gamage (Homers) - 10 at 7.10
Mohan Bandara (Homers) - 10 at 9.9
Austin Merrett (West Wimmera) - 9 at 8.89
Rup-Minyip recruit Jake Leith remains near the top of the run-scorers list despite only playing two games, thanks largely to an opening round 129 not out - which is HCA's highest score so far this season.
After a crucial knock at the weekend Blue Panters teammate Jamie Byrne sits only four runs in behind in third place. The opener's racked up 155 runs so far - a total he shares with West Wimmera skipper Mitch Dahlenburg.
