Australia names talent-rich World Championships line-up


The national selectors have chosen a blend of experience and dynamic youthful talent, giving national coach Norma Plummer a variety of options for the arduous six-match schedule in seven days.

Nine players will make their world championship debut, with only 34-year-old Ellis, Vice-captain Sharelle McMahon and shooter, Catherine Cox having contested a previous world championship.

Plummer is confident about her youthful team’s ability to handle the pressure in Auckland.

“Six of our players competed at the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games and the whole squad has experienced the pressure situations in the international arena over the past two years. They are capable of handling anything,” she said.

Liz Ellis (Captain) - 4th World Championships
