WESTBURY takes on Mowbray at Shaws Oval tomorrow looking to build on its winning form from last week's opening round of the 2013-14 Cricket North season.
The Shamrocks outplayed Launceston for a seven- wicket victory and coach Adrian Tudor was keen to repeat that winning performance.
"It was a very good all- round effort from the bowling group," Tudor said.
"It took them a little while to hit their straps but once they found the right areas they got the job done and allowed our batsmen to have a pretty small chase."
Tudor said he looked forward to the challenge against the Eagles, which he said was a team with some well-known names and some good young players.
"They're an unknown quantity because they didn't get a game in last week and they will be champing at the bit.
"Matthew Battle is still unavailable but we've brought Nathan Switch into the side as a more than adequate replacement."
MOWBRAY captain John Le Fevre said he expected a tough contest against the Shamrocks at home with their strong, experienced and settled side.
Le Fevre said his side was similar to last season with Alastair Biffin the only loss.
"We've got Fletcher Seymour who is a new player at the club who played last week and Connor Lockhart will be coming back in this week to take over as our regular wicketkeeper," he said.
"Fletcher is a young all- rounder who was on debut last week and and I think is an Australian under-age representative.
"He will bat in the middle order and probably bowl a few overs for us."
Le Fevre said he was looking forward to taking over the captain's role from Clinton Reid.
"It puts a bit more pressure on me but I think it will be good for both myself and to give Clinton a break to concentrate on his batting a lot more and give us a really strong contribution through the middle order."
GEORGE TOWN hosts reigning premier South Launceston at Crothers Oval looking to make amends for last week's loss to Riverside.
Coach Rohan Pooley said the Saints faced a big challenge and needed to bat better.
"I was impressed with our bowlers who bowled beautifully but we didn't field well and let ourselves down there and our top six batsmen need to bat for longer periods of time," he said.
"They are definitely a few things we need to work on and I've spoken to a few of our senior players as well who have to be aware there are no selection certainties."
Pooley said they had a good record against South over the past couple of seasons but would have to play their best cricket to be competitive.
He was happy with the performances of a couple of younger all-rounders in former independent school cricketers Luke Badham and Jesse Warren last week.
SOUTH LAUNCESTON coach Ben Austen said his side did not play well at George Town last season being beaten twice and was keen to right those wrongs.
"We still had a lot of deficiencies last season and this year our focus is to work on those," he said.
"George Town guys are always competitive down there and know their home turf pretty well and we need to play our best cricket to go well."
The Knights will have a full-strength side with the exception of Tom Waller who will miss with an exam.
RIVERSIDE will aim to make it two wins from two starts when it faces Launceston at Windsor Park.
Blues captain-coach Luke Richardson returns to the side after being unavailable last week but was happy with his side's performance in beating George Town.
"I was stoked to get the season under way on a positive note and it had been a while between wins for the boys," he said.
"From all reports it was a good solid team effort especially with the bat when we managed to get to a reasonable score that was defendable even though no one stood out and then our bowlers did well, especially Aaron Campbell who took five wickets."
Richardson said he expected the Lions to be determined to improve this week but thought if the Blues played well they could come away with another win.
LAUNCESTON was bowled out for 81 last week and captain Rowan Smith said they needed to apply themselves early in the innings to make a better start and get more runs on the board this week.
"Our bowling and fielding was pretty good albeit it for 20 overs and we haven't lost any confidence and look forward to improving with the bat this week," he said.
Brad Fryett is unavailable.
