University’s Nathan Hudson and Hamilton-Wickham’s Matt Webber return from suspension on Sunday to play against each other in what shapes as a crunch NCC Summer Bash encounter.

With just two competition points between them, the Sea Dragons and undefeated Pumas are scheduled to clash in the fifth and final T20 round game for Pool B at Passmore Oval with Hudson and Webber available to take the field.    

Both missed Sunday’s second and third T20 rounds after being handed down with one-match suspensions for indiscretions in the previous first grade two-day fixture last month. 

The sanctions incorporated the current first grade two-day fixture, which started on Saturday and finishes this Saturday, as well as the NCC Summer Bash double header in between. 

The Rosellas (Wests) are unbeaten in Pool B.      

POOL A: Rosellas 6, Magpies, Whips 4, Black Roses, Sabres 2, Seagulls 0.

POOL B: Pumas 6, Kookaburras, Sea Dragons 4, Lions, Waratahs 2, Tigers 0.
