Warwick player nervous ahead of polocrosse clash

WARWICK'S Carly Cooper and under 16 Australian Junior player, was fast to admit she was just a little bit nervous ahead of her first ever international polocrosse clash.

"I have played for Australia before but this will be our first time playing against a team from another country," Cooper said.

"I am a bit nervous but I know I'll be fine once I get out there."

Cooper said playing on home soil did work towards keeping the nerves at a minimum.

"It does a little bit, but sometimes it can turn on you too," she said.

The 16-year-old said she did not have many plans for the rest of the year, but was looking forward to donning the Cunningham colours for an upcoming state championship tournament.

The round robin competition between the junior and under 21 international teams will continue today and tomorrow.

Spectator entry is $15 for the weekend or $8 a day and children under 16 are free.

 

Yesterday's results

Ireland 9 v Queensland 15

Under 21s
