Ryan Hunter is the only absentee for the NW Warriors as they go in search of a consolation win against champions Leinster Lighting at Bready on Tuesday.

The Brigade opener has work commitments, but Head Coach Ian McGregor has the other 12 players available that travelled in vain to North County for two washed out games against Munster Reds.

The Warriors sit bottom of the table having lost three matches as well as those two wash-outs.

Lighting clinched the title with a relatively straightforward five wickets win against nearest challengers Northern Knights last Thursday at Sydney Parade.

The Dubliners are still missing the injured Barry McCarthy (knee), Josh Little (cut hand), as well as Andrew Balbirnie and Gareth Delany who are on T20 Blast duty.

Lightning though can still call upon seven senior internationals, and Head Coach Nigel Jones will want his team to keep their unbeaten run going.

Action at Bready gets under way at 1.30pm on Tuesday - weather permitting.
