OLD rivalries will reignite on the cricket field this weekend when Leeton hosts arch nemesis Griffith in the Hedditch Cup.
The Wolves have had just the one senior representative outing this season when they headed to Lake Cargelligo in the Creet Cup recently.
While that result didn't go their way, Leeton's attention is now firmly on retaining the Hedditch Cup after claiming it earlier this year in the 2018-19 season.
Leeton will be coming up against a Griffith side with the wind behind them after they were able to sew up a Creet Cup challenge victory over Lakes on Sunday.
However, Wolves captain Jordan Camm is confident Leeton can get the job done.
"There's definitely a lot of traditional rivalry there between Leeton and Griffith and I'm sure it will be the same this weekend," he said.
"After our Creet Cup game, we've decided to bring in a couple of more experienced players into this team, as well as keeping our youth there."
Camm believes the key to winning for Leeton will be an improved performance with the bat.
"In that Creet Cup match against Lakes I thought we bowled and fielded well, but we let ourselves down with the bat," he said.
"We need to improve our batting if we want to win this weekend."
With neither Leeton or Griffith challenging for the O'Farrell Cup this season, suddenly winning and retaining the Hedditch Cup holds much more prestige than it perhaps once did.
With Griffith now holding the Creet, adding a second trophy to their cabinet will be the icing on the cake, but it's a party Leeton is out to spoil.
"We definitely want to win and retain it," Camm said. "We've got a good side ... it will help having the home ground advantage as well."
The match will be played on Sunday at Mark Taylor Oval with the first ball to be delivered at 10am.
