HOCKEY: Warwick players Adam Byrne, Matt Hagenbach, Jamie Reid and Craig Windle will come off the bench for the Queensland over-45s team in a trial game against Queensland's over-40s at Queens Park today at 5.30pm.

The teams will head to Warwick for a two-day training weekend and start their time in town with coaching clinics for the juniors on Saturday morning.

The W2 players will be coached today for one hour from 10am and the W1 juniors from 11am.

Warwick over-35s player Grant Smith is in the Queensland over-45s team and will play in the trial game. Smith won a bronze medal with the Australian team at the Atlanta Olympics in 1996.

Byrne coached Warwick to third place in this year's over-35s state championships at Queens Park and said it was good for Warwick to host the state teams.

"Initially four teams were going to train in Warwick so it is a bit disappointing we only have two teams,” he said.

Former Warwick player Scott Reid is part of the Queensland over-40s side.

Byrne said this weekend's hockey would be high-quality play.

"The game at 5.30pm Saturday promises to be one of the best in Warwick in recent years,” Byrne said.

"The teams are training in preparation for the national masters hockey championships in Hobart in late September and early October.”

The four Warwick over-35s players are helping out the over-45s team, which has some players unavailable.

State team

WARWICK pair Josh Hagenbach and Bailey Rutledge are in the Queensland under-13 team to play in the nationals in Perth later this year.
