Crunch time



MURWILLUMBAH and South Tweed Colts go head to head this weekend in the first Tweed District Cricket first grade grand final in five years.

Both teams are hungry for victory and determined to hold the trophy aloft at the end of the weekend.

The home team and minor premiers, Murwillumbah, who are likely to start favourites, have brought in key player Justin Singh for the game.

Murwillumbah have beaten Colts on both occasions that they have met this season.

Singh, who had impressed with both the bat and ball before moving north for work at Christmas, has flown home from Gladstone for the match and is ready to go.

But Colts have proven giantkillers in recent weeks beating Cudgen, who had been favourites to take the title, twice in the lead-up to today's final.

It has been 17-years since a Colts team won the final while Murwillumbah, formed by the amalgamation of South Arm Burringbar and Murwillumbah Tyalgum three years ago, have never won the event.

Meanwhile in second grade, Terranora play Pottsville at Bilambil, Colts No1 take on Cudgen in third grade and Cudgen No2 face Terranora No2 in fourth grade.

MURWILLUMBAH: Kevan Newell (captain), Aaron Chapman, Adam Rodgers, Paul Dhillon, Clint O'Keefe, Josh Singh, Justine Singh, Matt Glynn, Reece Kennaugh, Lionel Foster, Craig Leslighter, Andrew Barnes, Josh Barnes. TWEED COLTS: Joel Walle (captain), Gavin Gleeson, Jason Fletcher, Adam Fairbanks, Alex Rigby, Tony McDonald, Jeremy Pierce, Daniel Hawkins, Cor- ey Bruce, C Carroll, D Robins, T Pope.
