Cricket clash: Coffs Coast Chargers and the Northern Rivers Rock

Coffs Coast Chargers and the Northern Rivers Rock do battle this weekend as the Plan B Regional Bash heats up.

Both these sides came up against one another in the first round in the Plan B Regional Bash last year where the Rock collected the spoils via a thrilling six run win.

There is no doubt that the Chargers are looking for revenge when the two sides meet on Saturday. The Chargers have named a talented squad of local Coffs Harbour-based players.

Jared Baldwin and Austyn Nugent will line up for the Chargers after impressing NSW Pathway selectors in recent competitions.

Northern Rivers Rock was knocked out at the second stage last season and will be keen to get back in the mix.

The Rock will be hoping Ballina’s Justin Moore, and Cudgen’s Caleb Zieball can fire again, with the pair putting on a 91-run stand in last year’s fixture to see their side through to the second round.

The opportunity to advance to the next round and get one step closer to playing on the hallowed turf of the Sydney Cricket Ground will be driving both sets of players.
