Cowra will be treated to another local derby this weekend in the Ben Core Electrical competition with Morongla hosting Bowling Club at Twigg Oval.

Both sides will be looking to record their first wins of the season with last weekend's matches abandoned due to wet weather.

With more wet weather forecast this weekend Bowling Club Captain, Paul Basham, said the side was hoping it held off until after the game.

"There is supposed to be a bit of rain about but Saturday says scattered showers so we can hope there's not too much in it," he said.

"It'd be good to try and even up with a few of the other teams and hopefully get a win instead of sitting on that draw."

He said the side always enjoyed playing against Morongla and was glad to see teams with strong numbers.

"It's always good going up against them," he said.

"We have good games with them, strong sportsmanship, the only (team) we have no idea about is Burrangong but that's coming up in a couple of weeks.

"It seems everyone has plenty of players, no ones been scared off, it's good to see people coming back to cricket.

"It was dying off for a while there."

Basham said his side was focusing on their batting heading into this weekend's match.

"Our bowling attack was really good so it'll be just working on our batting and hanging around a bit," he said.

"Especially for myself, our top order struggled a little bit.

"If it wasn't for Fergus (Carney) we'd of had a pretty dismal score."

He said the team was raring to go this weekend if they got the chance.

"There are a fair few new guys that have come through who showed a fair bit in our first game," he said.

"So it will be good to see how they back that up.

"They are all keen to get in and have a go so that makes it even better."
