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.
