Players picked for touring Indigenous hockey team

Date posted: 16 December 2011

Three young female hockey players from Rockhampton have been selected for Queensland's first recognised Indigenous hockey team.

Jasmine Cleland, Lucretia Willie and Shyneal Saunders will represent the North Queensland Rubies on their inaugural tour to Singapore early next year.

'I was so happy, it's such a great opportunity to gain experience,' said Cleland, who plays for Southside United.

Cleland hopes to follow in the footsteps of fellow Rockhampton hockey star Jordan Edwards who recently toured Fiji with the Australian under-21 women's hockey team.

The North Queensland Rubies team is a celebration of the work and achievement of Hockey Queensland Remote and the Indigenous Hockey Program.

The program is primarily aimed at creating playing opportunities and development pathways for participants.

The competition is set to start on March 3.
