Warwick player to captain state

WARWICK hockey player Adam Byrne will captain the Queensland development team on an overseas tour later this year.

The state team will either go to New Zealand in August or Fiji in December.

Byrne, 30, reckons he is the oldest player in the team by four or five years.

“The team includes some players who are in the Queensland Blades squad for 2011,” Byrne said.

“It was a big surprise for me to be selected as I hadn’t officially nominated.

“Toowoomba manager Steve Hawthorne snuck in a nomination for me and I am absolutely stoked to be captain.”

He was selected after competing for Toowoomba in the Queensland premier league in Brisbane last weekend.

Byrne, Troy March and Donald Miller were in the Toowoomba Eagles side which was runner up to Brisbane. At the end of last year, Byrne tried to get the Warwick Wizards team off the ground to play A1 hockey in Toowoomba. When the team wasn’t formed, he joined Rangeville to play A1 hockey in the Toowoomba competition.
