The MTB Northern Knights will look to end the season on a winning note as they take on champions Leinster Lightning in the Interprovincial Cup at Malahide on Saturday (10:15am).

They have gone with more or less the same squad that lost the corresponding fixture last week at Comber, with Head Coach Simon Johnston resisting the temptation to bring leg-spinner Jacob Mulder back into the squad.

North Down leg-spinner Carl Robinson is preferred and he may well get the nod to make his Knights debut as planning begins already for the 2021 campaign.

Instonians all-rounder James Hunter isn't in the mix, while Neil Rock who was on 12th man duties at Comber is expected to feature this time.
