The Golf Croquet State Coach would like to thank the team, reserves and supporters both at the venue, and back home, for their efforts in the recent Interstate Shield event. The team performed incredibly well to finish second in a tight contest against stronger NSW and Victorian teams than last year. The comeback against NSW was particularly pleasing, and we were very professional in the matches against Tassie, Qld and SA. There were a few errors against Victoria that will become learning experiences for the group.
The coaching group will be doing a review on what needs to be done to attempt to again move that tiny bit ahead of the others. This is not a post mortem as the patient is definitely not dead!
All the results for the Interstate Shield are on croquetscores.com.
