Rocky rep sides pad up for clash with Central Highlands

CRICKET: Rockhampton will host Central Highlands in the opening round of the CQ Championships on Sunday.

Aaron Harmsworth will captain the home side, which is keen to maintain its stranglehold on the regional competition also involving Callide Dawson and Gladstone.

He said Rockhampton boasted a good balance of experienced campaigners and players looking to establish themselves on the rep scene.

Harmsworth said the team's batting line-up, spearheaded by Frenchville skipper Joe McGahan, could well prove the difference on Sunday.

"We bat all the way down to nine and they are all quality batsmen in their own right,” he said.

"Central Highlands are always a good team and they'll have CQ rep player and all-rounder Cam Keene leading the way.

"They play with a nothing-to-lose attitude and really enjoy their cricket.”

The A-grade and under-21 games start at 9.30am at the Rockhampton Cricket Ground.

ROCKHAMPTON REP TEAMS

A-grade: Shaun Gilvear, Luke Johnstone, Lachlan Hartley, Joe McGahan, Aaron Harmsworth, Todd Harmsworth, Jason Wells, Justin Peacock, Brent Hartley, Logan Whitfield, Kade Horan.

Under-21: Josh Davison, Riley Connor, Dylan Page, Lachlan Knuth, Trent Acutt, Lachlan Jenkinson, Brad Dunsby, Sean Walsh, Jordan Curtis, Jordie Baldwin, Clinton Orford
