HOCKEY: Warwick striker Matt Eastwell was presented with two players' player awards during an unbeaten Queensland tour to New Zealand.

Eastwell played for the Queensland under-19 schoolboys team in eight games in New Zealand.

He scored in six of the games, including two goals in a game in Hawkes Bay.

Queensland played two games against the New Zealand Maoris under-21 and won both games convincingly.

Eastwell played in the forwards in all games alternating from the wings to inside forward spots and centre forward.

He was one of the two stick trappers on short corners for most of the tour.

"It was a great experience to play for Queensland and I made a lot of friends during the tour,” Eastwell said.

Down the years, he played for Darling Downs regional teams in five state schoolboys championships and played representative hockey for Warwick from 10 successive years.

Eastwell has returned to year 12 at Assumption College but still finds time in between school commitments for Tuesday night mixed summer hockey at Queens Park.

He is part of one of the teams in the competitive competition on Tuesday nights which is being played alongside a social competition on half

fields on the synthetic at Queens Park.

Eastwell is hoping to secure an apprentice in Warwick next year and plans to again play club hockey in Warwick and Toowoomba in 2017.

This season, he played in the Wyverns team which was runners-up in Warwick men's hockey and for a

Past High team which came third in Toowoomba A1 hockey.

He also played in Condamine Sports Club Super League this season.
