CHRISTIAN, HEAT STARS IN GRADE
The trio have won both games to this stage.
The pivotal game will be the morning clash between University of Queensland and Sunshine Coast at WEP Harris Oval, a rematch of the last two T20 grand finals.
The Blues have been substantially bolstered by the availability of Brisbane Heat stars Chris Hartley and Peter Forrest, who belted 15 off the last over to win a thrilling KFC T20 BBL clash against Adelaide last night.
Norths, who hold fourth spot on percentage, get James Hopes and the in-form Joe Burns for their clashes with South Brisbane and Wynnum-Manly.
Souths have not won a game and have a poor percentage but will be substantially boosted by the presence of Heat star Dan Christian alongside Ben Cutting.
