The North West Warriors have again been forced into a number of personnel changes ahead of their two Interprovincial games against the Northern Knights in Belfast this week.

Injury to Bready wicket-keeper Andrew Austin means that he joins Boyd Rankin and Stuart Thompson on the sidelines and sees Ballyspallen's Brendon Louw come in to the specialist position.

Marcus Poskitt will play in Monday's one-day game but is ruled out of the three-day match because of exams.

Davy Scanlon, Andy Britton and William McClintock have work commitments although Scanlon will come back in for the second game.

Skipper Andy McBrine will be attending the funeral of Alan Dunn but will return to lead the side for the start of Tuesday's Championship game.

Head Coach McGregor certainly doesn"t have his sorrows to seek as he looks to build on last season's successes, but he intends to use this opportunity to get a look at the depth in his squad.
