BITS out to reverse The Glen loss

BITS have the opportunity to exact revenge for last week's crushing at the hands of The Glen when the sides meet in today's Gladstone Cricket A grade day/night clash at Yaralla Oval.
The Glen sent a clear message to the rest of the competition with their performance last week and with the return of Jason Jefferis for this match, will field a strong team.
Jefferis, the hero of last year's premiership victory, adds strength to a team improving each week.
His brother and current skipper David is in superb form with the ball, while in Liam Kirk and Brett Rogers, they have two of the best young batsmen around.
BITS skipper Jaysen Chilcott is hoping last week's performance was an aberration.
There is certainly enough talent in the team with the likes of Brad Webber, Steve Austin and Lucas Hall so don't be surprised if they turn their form around. The match starts at 2pm.
In the round's other clash, the in-form Calliope host leaders Brothers at Bunting Park.
The Roosters were certainly crowing after last week's upset of Yaralla and are keen to replicate that form in the two-dayer.
Ken Wogandt enjoyed one of his best games last week with a fine half-century and five catches, and he shapes as a key player if the Roosters are to win here.
Brothers are refreshed after the bye and a win in this clash would just about wrap up top spot and a grand final appearance.
The match starts at 12.30pm.
In today's reserve grade games, Brothers take on Calliope, while Yaralla play The Glen.
Meanwhile, in tomorrow's B grade fixtures BITS Gold is up against Calliope Blue, BITS Green plays The Glen Gold and Callipe Red hosts The Glen Black.
