HENTY will look to stitch up a spot in the Holbrook and District finals when it takes on Holbrook at Holbrook on Saturday.

With the Swampies drawing seven points clear of bottom-placed Culcairn, skipper Chris Spicer said another win was crucial.

“It was good to roll Cul last week,” Spicer said.

“It’s still tight but a win this week would just about secure us a spot in the finals.

“We are starting to play decent cricket.

“Osborne rolled us, but we have been getting better each week.”

Henty’s trump card has been Chris Manns.

Although he has taken only 10 wickets, the swing bowler is in fine form and will worry the Holbrook top-order.

New-ball partner Braeden Pantling is also bowling well.

Osborne should have the answers against Culcairn at Osborne.

The ladder is: The Rock Yerong 127, Osborne 116, Holbrook 111, Henty 109, Culcairn 102.
