Heat out to burn All Blacks

WITH four Cooloola Heat players chosen at the Wide Bay School Titles yesterday, the Heat should be red hot tomorrow in their match against the Bundaberg All Blacks.

Coach Peter Chatman said the team was a few men short, with players away due to commitments, but those that would be playing included Joe Collins, Jack McKean, Drew Wenzel and Jamie Austin - who were all picked to play in the Queensland School Boys Hockey Champs, hosted by Gympie in May.

Other top Gympie players, Mitchell Collins and Patrick Barnes who performed well in last year's national championship team, were chosen.

Barnes is currently in Europe with the Australian School Boys side but was automatically selected.

Chatman said tomorrow's match should not be too much of a challenge for the Heat, but would not be a walk in the park either.

He said the All Blacks had not performing too well so far this season, but would be on home ground so it was hard to tell how the game would play out.

And with the recent Wide Bay selection, players would have something to prove to Chatman, who is also the manager of the Wide Bay team.

The boys will also be looking to impress the Wide Bay coach who is based in Bundaberg and most likely be looking to see how they perform under pressure.
