The World Cup is over, now it is back to club polocrosse

POLOCROSSE: The Killarney Polocrosse Club has 44 teams nominated for this weekend's carnival at Killarney.

Club vice-president Col Broomfield said the carnival had attracted New South Wales teams from Grafton and Inverell.

"We have teams coming from as far as Chinchilla, Dirranbandi, Tambo and Longreach in Queensland,” he said.

"All of our club members will be involved in running the carnival.”

Games will be played in open grades from A to E.

World Cup player Lauren Sillitoe won't be on her main horse but will be part of the Tansey 3 team at Killarney.

While the draw hasn't been completed, Tansey, Gold Coast, Warwick and Cunningham are set to play in the A-grade competition.

"We have junior teams from Warwick, Gold Coast, Grafton and Tansey,” he said.

"Nine mini junior players will be in action at the carnival.”

Chris Sillitoe is zone chief umpire and will be in charge of the umpires at Killarney.

Play starts at 8am tomorrow and Sunday.

There will be 11 rounds of polocrosse on four irrigated fields which are just south of the Killarney shops.

The A-grade final for the Grayson Family Shield will start around 2.30pm Sunday.

Admission is $25 for the weekend. Children under 16 free.
