Di­a­monds are set to shine

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Drive Way -

FIVE West Coast Fever play­ers have been named in the 18-player Aus­tralian Di­a­monds squad ahead of the World Cup in Syd­ney.

Cap­tain Ash­leigh Brazill and vice-cap­tain Caitlin Bas­sett, along with Natalie Med­hurst, April Let­ton and Khao Watts were an­nounced in the squad last week.

Ten of the 18 play­ers are from top-two Cham­pi­onship teams - Fever and the Queens­land Fire­birds - that re­main un­beaten this sea­son.

Di­a­monds coach Lisa Alexander said the squad gave se­lec­tors the best chance of choos­ing a win­ning World Cup team.

The team will be named at the end of the Cham­pi­onship sea­son.
