The return of skipper Dan Bogovac, plus two experienced first graders, will bolster Wests Illawarra for this afternoon's round two Illawarra cricket clash against Balgownie at Judy Masters Oval.
Wests were no match for a rampant Keira in the opening-round one-dayer, while new Balgownie skipper Adam Berwick smashed a century as the Magpies belted 4-293 in thrashing Dapto.
Bogovac missed the Keira clash due to his honeymoon, but with the addition of Andrew Tougher and Luke Boncompagni, Wests should be stronger today.
"There's been some changes at our club in the off-season and with three changes from round one we're definitely looking for improvement against Bally," Bogovac said.
"Our goal is to play the best possible cricket we can each week. We know there'll be ups and downs along the way, but we want to be as consistent as possible in the performance we put in.
"Andrew [Tougher] and Luke [Boncompagni] coming back is a bonus and we're looking for a solid effort."
This season, Wests have lost youngsters Blake Redman, Tylar Edwards (Sydney grade) and Nikhil Verma (University), but will continue to rebuild with youth, with Wests one of Illawarra's top junior clubs.
Balgownie, after coming off a poor season, are targeting a return to the top four and will want to build on their impressive first-up effort against Dapto.
In other round-two games today, premiers Helensburgh host Keira in the rematch of last season's premiership decider.
Keira skipper Graeme Batty is the biggest wicket in the competition - he began with an unbeaten 93 against Wests.
In other games, Wollongong host Corrimal, Port Kembla are at home to Northern Districts and Dapto welcome University.
