Downs players earn further selection

DESPITE failing to capture the Schaeffer Shield on their home wicket, there was still plenty to cheer about for the four Darling Downs cricketers selected in the South Queensland squad.

Matt Dennis, Chris Hall and Jack Carty were chosen from the Darling Downs and South-West City team while Country quick Matt Elford also earned a start.

It is the second South Queensland cap in as many weeks for Carty after he was also named in the under-19 team last weekend.

Both Darling Downs sides would have thought they were at long odds for higher representative honours after struggling against eventual winners South East Queensland.

But Dennis, who was also selected in the team last year, said the City trio had definitely earned their selection with a much improved performance against Wide Bay yesterday.

"Chris Hall got a hundred for us and we put 300 on the board and we defended well so I was really happy with that performance," he said.

"And young Jack Carty bowled really well on both days. He actually chipped in with the bat (on Saturday) too.

"It was really good to have three players selected. I'm very happy with that result."

The South Queensland team will play North Queensland at Allan Border Field on November 24-25.
