Good result for local players
QUEENSLAND won the men’s under 21s title at the Polocrosse Nationals at Ballarat yesterday, thumping NSW 26-14.
The Sunshine State had two cliff-hangers on day five of competition on Friday, beating Victoria by three goals in the men’s competition and going down by two in the ladies.
Warwick Polocrosse Club president Les Fraser said more than 20 of the 80 or 90 players at the nationals were from the Southern Downs.
He said yesterday was the final day of competition and the horses and riders would be back by Wednesday at the latest.
Fraser said they would now start preparing for the Shell Cup and Barastoc Interstate Series which will be held April 9, 10 and 11 at Morgan Park.
Fraser said there would be about 14 interstate teams and more than 60 club teams at the event, including a New Zealand team to play in the Barastoc series.
Fraser said they would now rest for a couple of days before preparing for the Morgan Park events.
