Australian Mens squad shaping up
Jake Egan (JE) Firstly congratulations on
being named Head Coach, how's preparation coming along?
Glenn Meredith (GM) It's a huge honour to be
involved with lacrosse at a world level again, I've got some great
assistant coach's that I'm very excited to work with. We're under
no illusions about the task that faces us in Denver. We have
a two-year timeline in place, but in the short term - we're looking
forward to the Nationals in Perth, and we're excited about the
daunting task of choosing our final team from such a talented squad
(of over 100).
JE For those of us that don't know, what's
the Down Under Cup all about?
GM The DUC is a chance for International men's
and women's teams to come and play some lacrosse 'down under' - and
enjoy our great land. It's also a chance for our players to get
some International experience.Lacrosse Victoria and Paul Mollison
should be congratulated for their efforts, and I look forward to
it's growth in the future.
JE As Head Coach of the Australian team,
what are you hoping to get out of the DUC?
GM It will be a great opportunity for the
coaching staff - namely, Chris Baker and Murray Keen to see the two
Victorian teams in action. I'll be watching players to see how they
gel outside their club environment.
JE What International teams are involved
GM There are men's and women's teams coming
from USA, Japan, & New Zealand.
JE What can spectators expect from the
GM It should be a terrific showcase of
lacrosse. With 38 players from the men's Australian squad
competing. Combine that with the quality of the US and New Zealand
women taking on our Australian Women's squad members for the 2013
JE Glenn thanks very much for the time, and
all the best with choosing a team to bring home the gold - anything
you'd like to add?
