Rovers and Nulla’s Premier League sides will both be in action in Kempsey for round five of the inaugural competition on Saturday.

Rovers will be searching for their first win of the season when they host Macquarie.

However, it will be a tough task with Macquarie heading into the match in second position on the ladder and undefeated in their two matches.

Rovers enter the contest on the back of a bye.

Meanwhile Nulla will be out to turn things around after suffering a hefty defeat last week against Taree United.

Nulla were dismissed for 77 runs at Laurieton Oval and United were able to surpass Nulla’s total with ease.

The loss dropped Nulla to sixth position on the ladder while Rovers sit in eighth.

The top four sides will qualify for the finals series.

At the time of print, the forecast for Saturday according to Weatherzone was a 30 per cent chance of rain with possible showers throughout the day.

Rain has impacted five Premier League matches this season.
