McMahon backs Ensbey

By TONY WHITE

HARWOOD Hilton captain Tim McMahon is banking on the talents of Nathan Ensbey to lead his team's all-important run chase against South Services in the Bananacoast Community Credit Union Premier League cricket match at Iluka Oval today.

Harwood will resume at 1-28 chasing South's 137-run total.

The result in the top-ofthe-table clash will go a long way to determining this season's minor premier, a title Harwood is yet to achieve in the competition's history.

Harwood is without steely opener Ed Munday ? out with a hamstring injury. Mark Ensbey will also miss the match due to a wedding commitment.

Matt McKee comes in to the side for Mark Ensbey.

"It's not a big total to chase but sometimes things can get a bit tricky," McMahon said.

"We've got a good, solid batting order but Nathan has been in great form all season and I'll be relying on him to be there for the majority of the time.

"The key is for us to play positively. It's a real important game. If we win we'll go to the top of the prem- iership and hopefully we can pick up some bonus points to have a lead going into the final round against Tucabia-Copmanhurst."

In other games Westlawn Grafton Hotel resume at 2-31 chasing GI Hotel Tucabia-Copmanhurst's total of 221 at McKittrick Park, South Grafton.

East Royal Tavern is 3-48 chasing Grafton Services Brothers' 194-run total at Ellem Oval, Grafton.
