The Macleay Valley’s first grade cricketers will face off in two-day matches over the coming fortnight.

Currently in fourth place on six points after a slow start to the season South West Rocks will host Rovers who sit in second on 25 points.

Despite the gap between the teams on the ladder, the game promises to be highly competitive.

Rovers, who have had mixed results in the early rounds, seem to have found some form of late with two consecutive victories and will be hoping to keep that momentum going into the Christmas break.

In the other game, Stuarts Point Eungai who currently lead the competition on 29 points, will be looking to extend that advantage in their clash against the third placed Nulla (20 points) at South Kempsey.

Both sides had losses last Saturday and will be keen to bounce back this week. Matches start at 1pm. Good luck to all teams.
