Rocky's junior cricketers ready for rep duties
CRICKET: Junior rep cricketers will pad up for the first round of intercity fixtures this weekend.
Rockhampton will take on Central Highlands in divisions from under-11 through to the combined under-15/16s.
The U11, U12 and U13 games will be played in Emerald, with the U14 and U15/16 games at Rockhampton's Kalka Shades from 8.30am tomorrow.
The U11s will play T20 games, the U12 and U13s 40 overs and the two older age groups 50 overs.
The Rockhampton sides are expected to perform well given they contain a number of Central Queensland representatives.
CQ's under-12 cricketers are also counting down to the state championships, which will be staged in Rockhampton in December.
Rockhampton Junior Cricket vice-president Tony Newman said planning was well under way for the five-day event, which would involve 12 regional teams from across Queensland.
"We're looking forward to hosting the event and seeing the state's best under-12 cricketers in action,” Newman said.
"Six games will be played each day at Kalka Shades and the Rockhampton Cricket Grounds.”
