Under 19s to take on South Burnett
BUNDABERG'S under-19 team will look to continue the success of the city’s junior representative sides when they head to Murgon to take on South Burnett in a Wide Bay Championships second-round clash this Sunday.
After a good first-up victory over Fraser Coast, the team has been further bolstered by the return of Steven Grogan and Michael Lovett.
They join Warwick Hawes, Boyd Smith, Steven Nichols, Daniel Faulkner, Oliver Hardaker, Callum Stitt, Dean Marles, Kyle Stallan, Shane Cook and Alex Lines.
The team bus will leave from the White Street entrance to Salter Oval at 5.30am.
