Local stars fill out AFL rep team



AS MANY as eight Gladstone dis- trict AFL players could be in ac- tion when the Capricornia open representative side takes on their Bundaberg counterparts in Bun- daberg.

AFL Capricornia president Ross Laycock said a full squad of 25 players would travel for the match with three to be omitted from the interchange bench after conditions and the opposition line- up has been taken into account.

Set to start for the Capricornia side are back Adam Dickenson (BITS), wing men Andrew Travers (Gladstone) and Lucas Hall (BITS), full forward Nathan Shipard (BITS) and ruck rover Deek Kanther (Gladstone).

Hoping to get on to the park af- ter being named on the extended bench list are Gladstone pair Mark Gordon and Greg McCallum and BITS' Luke Beale.

Rockhampton outfit Brothers, whose coach Steve Smithwick is in charge of the Capricornia out- fit, has the highest representation with nine players while competi- tion leaders Glenmore have just three.

The match, to be played at 2.30pm, is set to reignite the battle between old foes, AFL Capricornia and AFL Bundaberg Wide Bay who produced many tight and tough encounters through the late 1980s to mid-90s.

It is envisaged the clash will be returned as an annual event.
