Preview
Mount Lawley defeated Gosnells by 44 runs last week, while Fremantle suffered a six-wicket loss at the hands of Wanneroo.

Preview
Perth lost by four wickets to Midland Guildford in a rain-affected match last week, while Melville opened their season with a tight three-wicket win over Scarborough. Luke Towers will be the man to watch after surpassing 6000 runs. Perth will need to get him out early and also keep an eye on former Australian batsmen and ex-State captain Adam Voges.

Umpires: D Trigg, J Sherry

Scarborough: Brent Jarvis-Spinks(c), Jeremy Boyle, Liam Stevens, Liam Knight, Josh Philippe, Samuel Moylan, Sean O'Callaghan, Cody Rose, Nicholas Maiolo, Ryan Knight, Lance Morris.

Milestones: Nil

Preview
Both sides had a less than desired start to the season, going down to Melville and Bayswater-Morley, respectively. Ed Pollock will need some support around him, as it was left to too few to do too much for Rockingham-Mandurah last week. Nicholas Maiolo will be looking to keep his good form going after scoring 68 off 88 balls against Melville.

Milestones: Nil.

Preview
Subiaco Floreat lost in dramatic fashion last week going down by 61 runs to South Perth while Gosnells faired marginally better, losing to Mount Lawley by 44 runs. The battle for wickets between Andrew Holder and Jakob Horsman will go a long way to deciding this match with both coming off four wicket hauls last week.

Preview

Willetton suffered a huge defeat to start its season, going down by 119 runs to Claremont Nedlands, while Wanneroo enjoyed a powerful six-wicket win over Fremantle. Willetton will need a lift from everyone after last weeks’ poor performance while trying to contain Matthew Spoors (47no) with the bat and Jack Cattrall (3-26) with the ball as they both put on strong performances for Wanneroo last week.
