Warwick spinner set to be key player in cricket shield game
CRICKET: The Warwick Davis Shield side will play South Burnett in the Falconer Shield final at Slade Park on May5.
The game was postponed from March when South Burnett needed the original date for a replay of its grand final which had been washed out.
Warwick captain Dave Walker said the team would be similar to the combination which beat Lockyer in the Davis Shield final at Slade Park.
"Sean Bryson took six wickets for 12 runs in a match-winning performance with his off spin,” Walker said.
The Toowoomba Rugby League has no fixtures that weekend due to the 47th Battalion Carnival.
With no club footy, the Morris brothers, Nick, Joe and Tom, should be available for cricket and not be faced to choose between sports.
The Warwick team will train at Slade Park in the lead-up to the game.
At the end-of-season cricket presentations, Nick Morris and Cahal Davis won the two trips on the annual Wanderers Cricket Club tour.
The Wanderers team will head west this year and will play Warwick in a tour game on the way back to Brisbane on August24 at Slade Park.
Facilities for underground water will be laid across Slade Park between the May and August games. The Warwick Cricket Association has a grant of $31,000 from the Southern Downs Regional Council to install recycled water.
