REN Team News
Sitting at the bottom part on the table & the absence of Shaun Marsh from their side, due to the birth of his child, this side has become more terrible than how it was in the first half of the season. It has lost 7 games out of 8 and Finch can't look for any changes which can make them reach the playoffs from here. The leading run-scorer for the Renegades may miss this game as well due to the birth of his child and Rossouw has a hamstring which will give exposure to players like McGurk and Harvey.
