Waters set for clash with former Australian star
PETER Waters has fired a warning shot across the bow of former NRL halfback and All Stars opponent Scott Prince ahead of their much-anticipated clash.
"I hope he can keep up," Waters fired.
The Wallaroos coach will line up for his second Fraser Coast All Star appearance when they face some of Australia's best retired rugby league players at Stafford Park, Hervey Bay, on November 25.
Prince answered the veteran on Twitter.
Love his attitude - can’t wait to get up there 🤙🏽 https://t.co/LgYmpKCaOY— Scott Prince (@scottprince7) November 9, 2017
The Australian All Stars visited Hervey Bay for the first time last year, and boasted the likes of John Hopoate, Peter Gill and Nathan Blacklock.
While some names, like Gill and Blacklock, will light up the Torquay field again in two weeks, the Australian team will include a much younger outfit this time.
Prince will be joined by the likes of retired Queensland Origin stars Ben Hannant, Nathan Friend, and David Shillington in the green and gold.
Former Wallaroos coach and Queensland's inaugural fullback Colin Scott will also play for Australia.
But the Australian team should not take Fraser Coast lightly this time.
"This year, with a few training runs under our belt, we've actually got a bit of structure," Waters said.
"Guy (Meredith) has us all running the same direction.
Gates open at 10.30am, with a Police v Legends touch football to start the day's program at 11am.
Primary and high school teams, girls and women's, masters, men's and under-8s will all play before the main game starts at 7pm.
Tickets are available at Rebel Sport, Hervey Bay. Adults are $10, children aged 5-12 are $5, and a family pass is $20 if pre-purchased.
Tickets will be available at the gate on game day.
