HE’S already clocked 24 innings’ through both club and state duties this summer.

But Cam Williams’ desire for Melbourne Country Week success isn’t any less as a result.

Williams revealed he – alongside experienced country week heads Nick Butters, Brett Eldridge and Nathan Murphy – were hungrier than ever for success.

“I know we came close last year, but it just gives you more drive to go one better,” the Russells Creek captain said.

“We can match it with anybody, I feel. We know we can do it – it’s just a matter of putting the results on the board.

“It’s not arrogance or anything, it’s more that we just have belief in our ability as a team.”

Williams said Warrnambool had an advantage in its close-knit nature.

“We play very hard cricket against each other on the Saturday, but after that, we’ll always have a beer,” he said.

“Once you go to country week, it’s not just a bunch of individuals as a team that way. “We go as one team, not as the best 14 cricketers in Warrnambool.

“That’s the difference that our league has, I think.”
