Wet weather may eventually have the final say, but the Lake Mac Attack remain ready to play their maiden representative fixture this weekend.
The newly formed Attack are set to play a Regional Bash double header against the Hunter Hitmen and Central Coast Rush at Harker Oval on Sunday.
If the T20 games are washed out, the Attack will get another chance to debut the following Sunday (October 21) in an already rescheduled fixture with title holders the Newcastle Blasters at Waratah Oval.
“We’ve kept the same 12 we were supposed to have last week, but we’ll have 14 or 15 players there because it’s a double header,” Attack captain Adrian Chad said.
Waratah will be the venue for the Nathan Price-led Blasters this Sunday with back-to-back clashes down for the Rush and Hitmen.
Action at both grounds from 9:30am.
In the Newcastle District Cricket Association first grade competition and Cardiff No.2, Lynn Oval and Ron Hill Oval have already been washed out.
Tom Locker Cup third-round matches scheduled for Wallsend Oval, Kahibah Oval and Waratah Oval remain in doubt but fields are set to be inspected again on Saturday morning.
Meanwhile, Wallsend will welcome back left-arm paceman Pat Magann for the rest of 2018-19 after returning from Sydney side Randwick.
