Carnival certain to attract thousands

THE Rose Bowl Polocrosse Carnival this weekend is looking to be huge, with 88 teams nominated to compete at Morgan Park.

Warwick Polocrosse president Les Fraser said it looks to be a very strong competition, and anticipates a crowd of 2000.

"There's some good mixed teams with three men and three women… there's teams as far west as Longreach and south to Quirindi," Mr Fraser said.

"In the men's competition there is a strong competition from Tansey, Wandoan, Warwick, Quirindi, Tambo and the Gold Coast."

"Everything is going really well."

There's a jam-packed program for the polocrosse weekend, with events continuing into the night today and tomorrow.

Come along today from 3pm to catch the start of the round-robin competition between Australia and Ireland.

Tomorrow, get up early for 8am to see the start of the matches, and stay for events happening in the evening.

On Sunday, the competition starts from 8am and ends with the Rose Bowl final at 2.30pm.
