IPSWICH'S hopes of claiming the Plunkett Cup are on hold after rain delayed the final in Toowoomba.

The final is the latest casualty of the weather, with the entire round of Ipswich cricket also cancelled.

The Ipswich-Logan Hornets were set to take on Toowoomba this weekend before the game was postponed to Sunday, February 24.

Hornets coach Aaron Moore said the delay wouldn't affect the team's approach.

"We played Toowoomba earlier in the year and didn't fare too well," he said. "We lost the toss and I think got the worse of the conditions. They got on top of us and it didn't last too long. We'll definitely be looking to settle a bit of a score against them."

But Moore won't be able to oversee any score-settling as he will be in Perth. Ipswich Webb Shield coach Craig Jesberg will take over coaching of the Plunkett Cup team on the day.

In the Ipswich Logan Premier League, all games will all be declared draws, with Laidley and Eastern Taipans denied the opportunity to sound each other out before the one-day competition grand final.

Brothers' position second on the table is safe with their match against third-placed Northsiders cancelled.

New Brothers captain Luke Dixon had been looking forward to taking on Northsiders.

"You're always disappointed not to play," he said. "We would have backed ourselves to win against Northsiders though."

Dixon said the team was expecting Craig Cumming back and the debut of Mukesh Sharma who scored 98 for the Ipswich Webb Cup team.

"Mukesh, who's come to us, hasn't played a game for us in the Premier League ... it'll be good to see him out on the field," Dixon said.

Northsiders captain Paul Milne was disappointed to miss an opportunity to jump into second place but was looking to the positives.

"In wet conditions if we didn't have a good day they could have got one up on us," he said.

"Then they would have got further ahead.

"As it stands, we've got a good chance to do well in the last few rounds."
