The Wolves have selected a team with a mix of both youth and experience.

Some members of the side will also be playing their first match of the season due to cancelled rounds and a club bye.

Captain Jarryd Day was hopeful that wouldn’t affect their chances against their traditional rivals.

“It should be a pretty interesting game,” he said.

“We’ve got some of the younger kids coming up and having a crack.

“There’s Nathan Tang and Hugh Collins, both are good players.

“Jamo Booth is another one …he’s always good during Saturday games, so hopefully he can bring that to the senior rep level.

“Nathan Lanham is usually pretty consistent.Those younger players should hopeful mix well with our experience.”

The Wolves enjoyed a decent representative season in 2015-16, which included making the Creet Cup grand final and defeating Griffith in the O’Farrell Cup.

“I’d say they (Griffith) will be wanting to get one back over us after we beat them in O’Farrell last year,” Day said.

“Griffith have been playing cricket while we haven’t, so they are probably a good fortnight ahead of us when it comes to match fitness.Hopefully that doesn’t have too much of an impact.”

Narrandera’s Jake Anderson has also made himself available for representative selection this season.

“He’ll definitely be a boost,” Day said. “I would say he’s one of the best bowlers in the competition and he’s also good with the bat.

“It’s good to have all-rounders in the team.”Yanco Sportsground will host the fixture on Sunday.

It will be used for the first time this season on Saturday in the A grade match between Yanco Cricket Club and the Phantoms.

Day was confident in pitch.“It’s usually a pretty decent wicket out there, I think it’s held up alright (with the weather),” he said.

Leeton side: Nathan Tang, Nathan Lanham, Brent Lawrence, Nathan Carn, Jarryd Day, Hugh Collins, Jameson Booth, Jake Anderson, Josh Carn, Billy Dickinson and Toby Daniels.
