SOUTH Queensland Country under-19 captain Alex Beatty says young quick Tom Freshwater is primed to fire against North Queensland in their two-day clash at Allan Border Field.

The pair are brimming with confidence after guiding Wide Bay to victory in the Denis O'Dea Shield under-19 championship last month.

Beatty, an all-rounder for Past Grammars, said he was honoured to lead the side and tipped Freshwater to do plenty of damage with the new ball.

"I think he might have a pretty big carnival," Beatty said of the Hervey Bay teenager.

"I don't think there are many in the team that are left handers and I'm sure we'll get a fair few overs out of him.

"He has a bit of pace and gets a bit of movement early on.

"He also has great line and length and for a fast bowler, he's one of a few who doesn't get impatient when he bowls."

The 96-over match starts on Saturday.
