With a place in the finals on the line in the Twenty20 competition, Kooringal Colts are looking for an improved performance against Lake Albert on Saturday.

Both teams lost last week but could still book a finals place if results go their way.

After being limited to 76 by Wagga RSL in the nine-wicket loss, batting is one thing that needs improving.

Coach David Bolton missed the match, but thought it was invalueable experience for the club’s younger contingent.

“We had a youngest team in that had a lot of bowlers and from the sounds bowled really wells and gave some guys exposure to that level,” Bolton said.

“It wasn’t all bad.”

Colts welcome back some of their best batsmen, including Bolton to tackle the Bulls.

“We’ll have players back but at the same time have guys doing exams and a wedding so we will probably be a little stronger in the bowling and a little lighter in the bowling,” Bolton said. 

“We are trying to give as many guys as we can a hit on the turf.”
