Justin reins in a new sport with help of horse lover Jess
JUSTIN Duncan worked out soon after meeting Jess Osborne that she wasn't going to give up polocrosse.
"I was a motor bike rider and told her she would have to teach me to ride a horse," Duncan said.
He put the bike in the shed, started polocrosse and will be in action at the season's first carnival in Queensland, the Shell Cup, this weekend.
Riding a horse is a lot different from Duncan's day job - he is a mechanic in underground mines and travels all over Queensland and New South Wales.
Osborne is a teacher at Clifton and a reserve for the Queensland women's team for the Barastoc Interstate Series this weekend.
They were at Morgan Park last Sunday for a working bee and a spot of practice.
Their volunteer roles included cleaning, mowing and field marking.
Both will return this weekend for the start of the interstate series at noon Friday, two nights of action and games all weekend.
