Geitz to play on
AUSTRALIA captain Laura Geitz yesterday confirmed she will lead the Queensland Firebirds in next year’s transTasman championship.
The 27-year-old was thought to be contemplating retirement after leading Australia to victory in the World Cup in Sydney last month.
But as reported in The Courier-Mail yesterday, Geitz will play on in 2016.
“Well it was no secret, but it just wasn’t official that I’d be back in the Queensland team for the 2016 season,” she said.
Geitz has led the Firebirds to two titles from four grand finals in five seasons.
