Hard to split

SEAN and Rowan Lutter are hard to separate.

The identical twins are best mates, study at uni together and left home club Fassifern to join Central Districts together.

Both twins, who stand 196cm tall, are studying secondary education with the plan to become physical education teachers.

They were at the Gabba for day four of the first Test between Australia and South Africa on Monday and if they get their way, will climb the senior cricket ranks together as well.

The pair has enjoyed considerable success since joining Centrals this cricket season.

Both were chosen for South East Queensland under-19s with fast bowler Sean earning selection for South Queensland and Queensland Country teams.

All-rounder Rowan suffered a knee ligament injury from which he has recovered just in time to take up the 12th man spot in the Queensland Bulls Masters team to play an Ipswich Invitational XI at Baxter Oval on Sunday.

"There were more opportunities," Rowan said of the reason behind their move to Centrals. "And the coaching."

The twins have appreciated the extra guidance they've been able to get from the likes of Centrals mentors Scott Barrett and Darryl O'Sullivan. "It's been really good," Rowan said.

Not surprisingly, the cricket of Rowan and Sean developed through their own healthy rivalry in the back yard at Boonah.

Rowan's batting has benefited from his brother's bowling prowess and vice-versa.

"It was always a good contest," Rowan said. "It was good because he's quite quick. It was good to get some good practice against fast bowling."

But there appears no resentment if one has success and the other doesn't.

Like when Sean made the South Queensland and Queensland Country teams while Rowan missed out, despite Rowan being amongst the runs and wickets.

"It would have been good to make it but ... oh well," Rowan said.

Getting picked alongside the likes of Andy Bichel, Stuart Law and Michael Kasprowicz for the Bulls Masters was considerable compensation.

"It'll be good fun," Rowan said.

"I was pretty happy.

"I'm not really too sure what to expect. Hopefully I'll get to know some good Queensland players and have a good experience."

Rowan's main goal for the rest of this season is to regain his spot in the Central Districts Premier League line-up.
