Dennis back in Queensland side after Country Cup

IT WASN'T enough to lead South Queensland to victory but Matt Dennis' efforts in the Country Cup have earned him a recall to the Queensland Brahmans.

Dennis was the only Toowoomba player selected after South Queensland went down by two wickets at Allan Border Field at the weekend.

South Queensland batted first and posted 251 with Dennis (45) among the top scorers before their bowlers had North Queensland reeling at 4-53 at stumps on Saturday.

Despite the best efforts of Matt Elford and James O'Donohue, who each finished with three wickets, North Queensland recovered yesterday to win back the Country Cup.

While none of the other Toowoomba players were chosen for Queensland, Dennis said he was impressed with their efforts.

"The other bowlers weren't too far away (from Queensland Country selection)," he said.

"It was the first trip for all of them. It's just a great experience. I said to them that it won't be their last trip."

The Brahmans go into camp on December 30 ahead of the Australian Country Cricket Championships in Bundaberg from January 3-14.

Dennis has plenty of experience in the team and said it was a great to be back.

"It's always great to be in the side," he said.

"It's been a couple of years. I was last there in 2010. I'm really looking forward to it."
