University test for Hornets

THE Ipswich Logan Hornets first grade side returns to its home ground for the first time in 2014 today.

The Hornets take on University of Queensland in a two-day game from 10am and continues tomorrow.

It is a tough assignment for the 10th placed Hornets against second-placed UQ and they will need to do much better than their loss to Norths last week.

"We're looking pretty good I think," Hornets player/coach Geoff Paulsen said.

"We've had a good couple of training sessions."

The Hornets could well be facing Queensland wicket-keeper Chris Hartley, who has been surplus to requirement for the Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash.

"It's good for the boys to play against guys who have played a lot of state cricket," Paulsen said.

"That's why you play Brisbane grade cricket.

"We just need to get enough runs to put the pressure on.

"Our bowling has been good all season."

In second grade, the Hornets take on UQ at St Lucia.
