Macleay Premier League cricket sides Rovers and Nulla are set to face tough tests in the Mid North Coast competition this Saturday.
Fresh off their first win of the season over Taree West last week, the Rovers will travel to Taree once again, this time to face off with United.
Rovers, who have one win from their four games, are the underdogs against United, who have two wins from four games.
However, Rovers are hopeful they can build momentum and string a few wins together after getting the monkey off their back last week.
Meanwhile Nulla will host Wauchope RSL, who have proven to be a chance for the title after securing two wins from their three games this season.
However, both sides will be weakened by the loss of their captains. Unfortunately for Rovers, the injury to Danny Powick is more severe and it’s likely he’s played his last game of the season.
Nulla’s Ben Taylor strained his calf in their loss against Wingham last week.
Taylor is hopeful his side can pick up the slack without him and return to winning ways ahead of the Christmas and New Year break which is four rounds away.
Nulla have won two of their four games this season and currently sit in sixth position. Rovers are in seventh.
