QLD Team for Aus Sides announced

by admin

The Queensland Team to compete in the Australian Sides Championships in Darwin from the 2nd – 5th May has been announced. The Queensland Team to compete in the Australian Sides Championships in Darwin from the 2nd – 5th May will feature some new and returning players. 
Following on from their series loss in both the Men and Women’s Test Series versus NSW recently, selectors have made some changes to both teams. 
The big inclusion for the Queenslanders is former NSW rep and Australian star Aron Sherriff who will make his debut for the Maroons. Andrew Howie, who was part of the best performed rink at last year’s Sides Championship makes a return to the men’s team after solid performances this year. Scott DeJongh-Fitzpatrick makes a come back to the open side after being awarded the player of the series versus NSW in the U25 category. Robert Wild was unavailable for this series due to family and work commitments.
The women’s team will be looking to defend their title after winning the Marj Morris Trophy in Adelaide last year. Changes from the NSW Series include a return of Jessica Srisamruaybai after missing the series due to family commitments and the experienced Louise Witton re-joins Lynsey Clarke’s rink.
Selection Coordinator Greg Bostock said “The selection process is always difficult as we have a wealth of talent available knocking on the door. We believe these teams will be very competitive against the strong opposition they will encounter in Darwin”.
