Wagga City coach Jon Nicoll and Wagga RSL bowler Nick Grant have been selected as part of the Riverina team for the NSW Country Championships.

The pair played last year with Nicoll, who has been crowned Wagga’s best cricketer for the past four seasons, going on to represent NSW Country.

There has only been one change from the Riverina team of last season.

Wagga City captain Josh Thompson made him unavailable for selection with his place in the team taken by former Wagga player.

Nicoll is vice-captain with another former Wagga cricketer, Joe Cooke, captain.

The team has a training session at Robertson Oval on October 23 before playing on the South Coast on November 10-12.
