Tweed Netball shaping up



THE prospects for Tweed Netball Association's representative teams next year are looking good following the appointment of some new coaches and a team physio.

Jeff Murray, whose wife Judy is the association's head umpire, has volunteered to act as the teams' physiotherapist for 2005 and will travel with the teams to all their major carnivals.

Murray recently as- sessed all the 60-plus representative players to find their strengths and weaknesses before the start of the normal competition season at the end of February.

"It's good to have Jeff on board, he'll be a great help and will be able to keep a good eye on the girls - he's put together a training program which will focus on any problems they may have," association secretary Cheryl Baker said.

Also joining the camp is new 17s coach Steve Rust, a former Victorian State coach.

"Steve's coached senior teams in Victoria and he'll be a great asset too - the new coaches will no doubt bring some fresh ideas on board as well," Baker said.

The representative season kicks off in April with the Origin Shield carnival in Murwillumbah, followed in May by the Queensland State Age titles and the Country Carnival in July.
