Brothers change shock weapons



? BROTHERS captain Lachlan Spyve is not planning on making a bowling appearance when his team returns to 100-over cricket at the Rockhampton Cricket Grounds this weekend.

Spyve will lead his team into the Southern Star Sports Shield A-grade semi-final, again facing Frenchville, after winning the Rockhampton Cricket Twenty20 title on Sunday night.

The skipper's medium-pacers made early breakthroughs into the Frenchville batting order, taking 3/18 ? following his three wickets in the semi-finals.

"You won't see me bowling in the finals ? we have another shock weapon,'' Spyve said.

Frenchville needed 26 runs with three wickets in hand, before Brothers strike weapon Scott Mansfield took 3/9 making his first bowling appearance in the Twenty20 series to clean up Frenchville in just two overs.

Over the past few years Brothers have dominated both the longer and shorter versions of the game and will once again chase the double if they can overcome Frenchville in the semi-final and book a grand final start against CQU Tigers on March 25 and 26.
