Pottsville to erase frustration
THERE will be no better time for Pottsville to erase the frustration of having its win over Marist Brothers wiped from the scoreboard than at Neilson Park in LJ Hooker League cricket today.
Pottsville travels south today to take on the Workers, a one-day clash between the league’s 10th and 11th-placed teams.
Pottsville takes a full-strength side, bar Brad Morris, who is out with a broken hand.
Captain John Morris said the players were keen heading into today’s game and weren’t taking their opponents lightly.
“We have got a team ready to go,” he said.
“We don’t take anyone easy, you can get beaten by anyone and we should have beaten Terranora earlier in the season. Every game is a different game.”
Pottsville’s Bryan Wirth is playing well, having scored 21 runs and taken 3-33 with the ball last week against Casino.
Morris also said Jamie Bennett was due for a big score.
Meanwhile, there is no reason Cudgen should not beat Southern Districts today, but Terry Wilson’s side will not be taking anything for granted at Reg Dalton Oval.
Souths will be on a high after beating Terranora, but will not be able to stand up to the firepower at Cudgen’s disposal.
Murwillumbah will be on the hunt for another upset against Tintenbar-East Ballina at Kingsford Smith South.
The young side pulled off a shock win over Ballina last round and there is no reason the side couldn’t do it again if it plays to its potential.
In other clashes today, Terranora takes on Byron Bay at Bilambil, Ballina Bears play South Tweed Colts at Ballina, Casino meets Alstonville at Casino while Lennox Head takes on Marist Brothers at Lennox.
