UP TO DATE: CQ Capras women’s squad for 2021
Structure and game play scenarios will be the focus when CQ Capras women’s coach Amanda Ohl convenes her troops in Rockhampton for a two-day camp this weekend.
The squad resumed training on January 14, preparing for the pre-season trial against the North Queensland Gold Stars in Mackay on March.
Every player will be fighting for a start in the BHP Premiership season opener against West Brisbane Panthers on April 10.
Eight teams will contest the 2021 statewide competition, which will run for seven rounds before a two-week finals series.
The Capras will be led by Queensland and Australian rep Chelsea Baker.
“Chelsea’s experience and knowledge of the game will play a huge part in our campaign,” Ohl said.
“She is the leader, both on and off the field, and has become a welcome influence over the playing group.
“The girls are training hard and we are hoping that with the new six again rule and the 35-minute halves that the fitness and mobility of our forwards will be a key strength for us this year.”
The Morning Bulletin has put together an up-to-date list of the Capras line-up.
