LEGANA will be strengthened by the return of some key players for its TCL A-grade preliminary final clash against Trevallyn tomorrow.
Captain-coach Andrew Gower expects to have batsmen Dylan Sharman and Ian Champion back in the line-up, with Jamie McClenaghan a chance to return from interstate for the big game.
The Durhams haven't beaten Trevallyn this season but will go into the game with confidence after last week's elimination final victory over Hadspen.
"We should have our strongest side available this week for the grand final replay from last season," Gower said.
He said the inclusion of Sharman and Champion was timely, with both players among the club's most consistent performers this season.
"Trevallyn had their first loss in last week's final and I think that plays on your mind, and after going through the season undefeated," he said.
"I think they might be a bit nervous facing us as the reigning premier.
"The boys are really keen to have another opportunity to maybe play in back-to- back grand finals."
Gower said their batting effort led by Sam Howe was good last week but they would need to tighten their bowling and not concede as many runs in their latter overs.
TREVALLYN will be keen to bounce back and make amends for its disappointing performance in last week's qualifying final against Beauty Point.
Trevallyn captain-coach Damian Whybrow said Beauty Point had turned up to play and his side had not.
He was particularly critical of a poor batting performance from his middle order, which failed to build on a good start.
"Nathan Balym and Shannon Rumble led from the front with the bat but no one else wanted to put their hand up and take responsibility," Whybrow said.
"Our bowling was good but we didn't take the catch we needed to and it hurt us - they say catches win matches."
Whybrow said he was confident his side could put that loss behind it and move on to play in the grand final by beating Legana.
"We've always had good games against Legana and it doesn't matter what the teams look like on paper, it's always a tough contest," he said.
Trevallyn should have an unchanged line-up for the match.
Whybrow said it was a big weekend for the club, which has all four of its teams playing in either grand finals or preliminary finals.
