Polocrosse Tests under lights on three successive nights
POLOCROSSE: Two sisters from Western Australia will be in action as Australia plays South Africa in the Carroll's Truck Sales Test Series at Morgan Park on April 20-23.
Suzette Thomas will captain the Australian women's team. She was named best player in the 2007 Australian World Cup win at Morgan Park.
Her sister, Lizzie Reid, played in the World Cup in South Africa in 2015.
They will be joined in the Test teams by fellow Western Australian player BJ Thomas, Suzette's brother-in-law, who played in a winning club team at Morgan Park last year.
There are two Queenslanders in the men's team, Tansey pair Trent Collins and Tom O'Neill.
New South Wales dominates the squads with nine players.
In a change to the program, the three women's and three men's internationals between Australia and world champions South Africa will all be played under lights.
The internationals will be on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, with the women's games first.
The Australian teams were named after some national squad games at Morgan Park in August.
Warwick Polocrosse Club president Les Fraser said the Barastoc Interstate Series, which would be played at the same carnival at Morgan Park, had attracted a record 23 teams.
"I am hoping to have some Barastoc action on the Thursday afternoon before the first of the Tests,” Fraser said.
"Barastoc Interstate Series games will be played on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday and the Shell Cup club competition on the Saturday and Sunday.”
