United's Davis ready for Parnell
UNITED'S Cam Davis hopes the runs continue to flow today, but there is a man standing in his way who the batsman admits has his measure.
The affable Davis has been undone by Atherton paceman Luke Parnell this season; Davis was clean bowled by Parnell for a duck in their last clash.
But the United all-rounder hopes he can build on last week's return to form and be Parnell's bunny no longer.
"I've been his bunny this season and he's in really good form (taking a five-wicket haul last weekend)," Davis said.
"But I have seemed to only make runs in the short-form stuff this season, so hopefully I can push closer to three figures after getting a few (46) last weekend."
The United v Atherton battle is easily the match of the round, with both teams boasting plenty of strength with bat and ball.
And on Griffiths Park 2, Davis predicted the winner would be the team who could best restrict the flow of runs.
"On the field the bowlers have got to show up or they get blown away," he said.
United are missing Queensland Country spinner Mick Salerno, who continued his good form in Bundaberg, taking 3-70 against ACT on Thursday.
Linden March is also out of contention, but that offers an opportunity to young gun David Coulthard to slot into United's middle order.
In other games, Norths host Mulgrave on Griffiths Park 1 and Southern Cyclones play Barron River in Tully. Games begin at 12.30pm.
