Two sets of brothers from Albany will represent WA Country on Sunday in the WACA Premier T20 and colts competitions.

Playing alongside the colts at Tompkins Park will be the WA Country XI, which will feature brothers Zane and Coen Marwick for round 1 of the WACA Premier T20 competition against experienced clubs Joondalup and Melville.

The Melville line-up will likely feature former Warriors and Brisbane Heat quick Ryan Duffield and former Warriors Luke Towers and Drew Porter.

Zane Marwick, who was part of the WA touring squad to Wollongong last January, is again in the extended Country XI squad and is joined by younger brother Coen Marwick, who has represented the colts for the past two seasons.

The Ferreiras, who play for North County, are again travelling to play under-17s for Midland-Guildford in the WADCC Shield competition.
