RSL-Whitney Cup 2016/17: Macquarie aiming to bounce back from disappointing draw

Macquarie was arguably the most affected by last week’s cancellation of all cricket and now the side faces a stern test against competition leaders and RSL-Whitney Cup favourites RSL-Colts.

RUNS: Macquarie's Ricky Medway is coming off a big score last round.

Macquarie posted 339 against CYMS before the second day of play was abandoned due to heat.

The Blues will now have plenty of motivation to stun Colts this round, starting on Saturday at No. 1 Oval.

Blues captain Keiran Brien had been calling for his batsman to stand up all season and that was the case last round when Ricky Medway blasted 160 against the Cougars and the skipper will be hopeful his batting lineup, featuring the likes of himself, Ed Haylock and Jason Green, fires again against the men in red.

Colts has all but sealed the minor premiership, having lost only once this season, and the motivation to head into the finals in winning form will drive them on Saturday.

Plays starts at 1pm.
