Recruit boost for Power

MCDONALDS Gladstone Port City Power women's team have received another boost to its playing stocks.

Fresh on the back of an upset win against Rockhampton Cyclones last weekend, the Power has signed American import Kerah Wilson.

She arrives on Saturday and coach Ray Cooper hopes she will be ready to take to the court in a tough double header against Gold Coast tomorrow from 6pm and South West Metro on Sunday at 12pm.

"She's about 5ft 11 and scores from the post and also an outside shooter," Cooper said.

Her addition offsets the loss of Hailey Moala who is currently trialling for the New Zealand Tall Ferns national side in New Zealand.

"Kerah will be a great addition to the side and she will bring a great energy as well," Cooper said.

The position three or four player comes from the IUPUI National Collegiate Athletic Association's Division One competition.

Nelson joins fellow import Markel Walker who signed up just prior to the QBL season.

Meanwhile the Power men's side also face Gold Coast Rollers and SWM as it attempts to rebound from a 41-point drubbing in round one.

Gladstone Port City Power may welcome back Ray Willis after visa issues prevented him from taking to the court against Rockhampton Rockets last weekend.

The Rollers will be seething after an 86-85 loss to Ipswich while SWM enter its stoush with the Power full of confidence after a 94-71 win against Toowoomba in round one.
