Former Queensland Bulls paceman Nathan Rimmington will make a return to State ranks following his selection today in the Queensland Academy of Sport team to play South Australia in the Toyota Futures League 2nd XI competition next week.

 

Rimmington, who returned to Brisbane earlier in the year after spending six years in Perth where he played first class and one-day cricket for WA, is the leading wicket-taker so far in the myFootDr Premier Cricket competition.

 

The right-arm paceman, who played for the Perth Scorchers in the inaugural edition of the KFC Big Bash League before switching to the Melbourne Renegades, has taken 19 wickets so far for Sandgate-Redcliffe.

 

Rimmington played one-day and T20 cricket for Queensland, taking a hat-trick for the Bulls in the old T20 Big Bash in 2007.

 

The QAS team will be captained by my FootDr Bulls batsman Sam Truloff and contains fellow Queensland squad members Bryce Street, Charlie Hemphrey, Peter Forrest, James Bazley, Lachlan Pfeffer, Luke Feldman and Matthew Kuhnemann.

 

Gold Coast left-arm spinner Kuhnemann made his List A debut for the Cricket Australia XI recently during the JLT One Day Cup tournament.

 

Hemphrey is the second leading run-scorer so far with 430 runs for Sandgate-Redcliffe.

 

Also included in the squad are Redlands paceman Josh Henderson, Valley allrounder Andrew Gode and Norths allrounder Nathan McSweeney, a Queensland under-19 player last season.

 

The QAS have won the past two Futures League titles.
