First grade action resumes in the Macleay Valley Cricket Association this Saturday with the opening day of two-day contests to beginning for round five.

Undefeated Stuarts Point/Eungai is back in action on the road against South West Rocks. 

The two sides are meeting for the first time this season and South West Rocks enter the game on the back of their first victory.

A win for Stuarts Point/Eungai would put them back in equal first position with Nulla.

Meanwhile the last placed Frederickton faces off with Rovers with both sides searching for their first victory of the season.

The two teams enter the match on the back of hefty defeats in one-day contests last week.

The two-day format allows for both sides to have an opportunity to score the most runs in their first innings from a limit of 50-overs. 

In the second innings, each side will bat until they declare or have lost all of their wickets.

Competition leaders Nulla have the bye.
