NARRANDERA will be out to break their recent run of losses with a win over the Leeton Soldiers Club on Saturday.
The two teams will go head-to-head at Narrandera Park in a Twenty20 game in what will be their first match up of the season.
The Carpheads went down in a close match with Yanco last weekend, while the Colts head into the match with a win against the L&D CC.
Narrandera captain Brent Lawrence was hopeful his side would get the job done.
However, he will miss the game, with Jono Doyle also out.
James Sullivan will step up into the captaincy role, while both Lachie Jess and Lincoln Gooley will return to the team.
“We’re really enjoying the introduction of the Twenty20 format,” Lawrence said.
“I think it was much-needed. It’s breathed a bit of new life into the competition.
“We’ve got B grade playing the Colts before our match on Saturday, so it’s created more of that club feeling.
“It’s also good because you have to think a little bit different in a T20 match.
“You have to change things up.”
The two teams, along with the other A grade sides this year, have shown anyone is capable of winning on the day.
Lawrence echoed that sentiment. “I think anyone is definitely able to win on any given day … it’s pretty even this year,” he said.
“We’ve got a good group of young players, it’s just giving them that experience and building them up. We’ve had a lot of games this year that were close and I think could have gone our way.”
