Current table:
Lisarow Ourimbah 100%, Northern Power 83.3%, The Entrance 75%, Kincumber Avoca 66.6%, Southern Spirit 50%, Wyong 50%, Terrigal Matcham 12.5%, Narara Wyoming 0%, Warnervale 0%

Here’s a preview of all sides for both their matches:

Lisarow Ourimbah – After losing last round, the Magpies will be looking to bounce back quickly and have a chance against one of the competitions best in The Entrance in the morning matchup. They will have to do it without two of their best in Scott Burkinshaw, away on rep duty, and Matt Jones, hamstring injury. With the bye in afternoon, they will be up for this morning contest.

Northern Power – The Power continued their up and down season last round, knocking off the competition leaders and return to a format where they are yet to lose this season at. Some notable outs including skipper Chris Archer, rep duty, will put pressure on some other players to step up. They are on the road for both games travelling to Southern Spirit in the morning and then heading back north to take on The Entrance.

The Entrance – The Seagulls have the toughest fixture for the weekend taking on two teams above them on the table. Taking on Lisarow Ourimbah in morning and Northern Power in the afternoon is no easy task but playing at home for both will give them an advantage. Adam Taylor and Marc Mariner are two players who will look to continue their form from the back end of 2019.

Kincumber Avoca – Whenever you think the Griffins might be a chance to slip down the table, they find another gear to win games. This week they travel north to take on Warnervale and Wyong in their two respective games looking for two wins to cement their place on finals day. Dylan Robertson is coming off a quick fire century last start and will be looking to pump those stats up again in these matches. Watch out for Harry Woodhead to clear the front leg and put a couple over the boundary rope.

Southern Spirit – After struggling in the longer formats, the Spirit will look to book a place for finals days with two good performances this week. Defeating Northern Power in the morning is crucial to leapfrog up the ladder and an away trip to Terrigal Matcham could be a mini final to make the final four. Lachlan Cork impressed for the Central Coast at the recent Colts carnival so look for him to have a big second half of the year.

Wyong – Wyong will need to win their one and only match of the weekend to be any chance to make semis. With a bye in the morning, they will be looking to take down a tired Kincumber Avoca side in the afternoons match to give them a shot. Hayden Murphy is always a danger man in this format but look out for English recruit Mitchell Robinson to fire some early fireworks.

Terrigal Matcham – With only the solitary point so far in the t20 competition, the Bellbirds will be keen to gain some extra points for the overall competition in their two matches. Home games against Narara Wyoming and Southern Spirit give them the advantage of conditions. Josh Bridge and Jamie Brien will look for early wickets in the powerplay to get the ball rolling.

Narara Wyoming – The Lions have found some form in recent weeks but a slow start to the season saw them winless in this format. Terrigal Matcham in the morning and then Warnervale in the afternoon, the Lions will look to avoid finishing last in the competition and get more points for the overall competition. The fast bowling cartel of Kyle Jordan, Andy Ryan, Mark McLachlan and Keiran Lawson will look to make life easy for their own batsmen, limiting to the opposition to low scores.

Warnervale – Last years T20 premiers, the Wildcats struggled to replicate last seasons form and will be playing for overall competition points as well on Saturday. A season ending injury to Simon Keen, thumb, will make life tough but they will look for rep player Tony Cornwell and form player Brett Russell, to post competitive scores in both their matches against Kincumber Avoca and Narara Wyoming.

The semi finals and final of the T20 competition will be played on Monday, 27 January 2020.
