Champs ready and waiting

THEY'VE waited seven months to gain swift revenge and at Harwood Oval today Westlawn players finally get their chance.

Harwood proved too strong in all facets of play against Westlawn in the 2010-11 Premier League decider.

Out bowled, out batted and out smarted, Westlawn had no answer to a clinical Harwood side.

Touted as red-hot favourites to win back-to back titles Tim McMahon's men will be keen to inflict more pain on the opposition after having a first-round bye.

"Everyone's keen for a game, especially all the young guys," McMahon said.

"The younger players have been training hard, but as far as the older one's go, well, they haven't fronted for too many net sessions.

"Naturally, every other side will be out to knock us off, that's what you come to expect after winning a competition."

McMahon added that his side will take to the field without new signing and talented all-rounder Luke Many.

"Luke is away and Nathan Ensbey is also out. But we have Mark Ensbey back for today's game," he said.

"Also, Craig Moran will slot into the side. He only played two games with us last season and is also a genuine all-rounder."
