The polocrosse action was of epic proportions with the best in the game calling it the most thrilling exhibition of the game, ever seen.
Polocrosse legend and Warwick Polocrosse Club President, Les Fraser, said if the atmosphere over the weekend was any indication of what’s to come, the 2019 Polocrosse World Cup is sure to be electric.
“The test matches between Australia and South Africa had everyone on their feet and the roar from the crowd as the players and horses rode onto the field gave you goosebumps.”
Queensland was successful in winning the Interstate U30 Mixed Competition, Interstate Junior Boys Competition and Interstate Junior Girls Competition and were runners-up in the Interstate Mens Competition, Interstate Womens Competition, and Interstate U21 Womens Competition.
“We hosted a record crowd over the weekend including day-trippers from across south-east Queensland and northern New South Wales,” Les said,
Polocrosse, one of only three Australian-made sports, will celebrate 80 years in 2019 and the World Cup will bring players from eight countries – Australia, New Zealand, South
Africa, USA, UK, Ireland, Zambia and Zimbabwe – to Southern Queensland to battle out for the world title.
The 2019 Polocrosse World Cup is expected to inject more than $6million into the Southern Downs economy when 300 competitors, more than 60,000 spectators and 2,000 international guests visit Warwick.
