Trash­bags join­ing Townsville derby team

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

FIVE of the Air­lie Beach Trash­bags skaters have been in­vited to play for Townsville team The Slaugh­ter­ers this Satur­day night against the Cairns Derby Dolls.

The Cairns Derby Dolls nar­rowly beat play­ers from the Trash­bags at the North­ern Trop­i­cal Thun­der tour­na­ment in June this year, so the ri­valry is ex­pected to be fierce.

Syd­ney skater Denise ‘Ruby Soho’ Un­ter­wurzacher from the In­ner West Roller Derby League vis­ited Air­lie Beach at the week­end and joined the Trash­bags for Fri­day night scrim train­ing and Sun­day morn­ing’s fresh meat ses­sion.

Air­lie Beach skaters en­joyed the visit as it gave them the op­por­tu­nity to learn from a skater with four years of roller derby ex­pe­ri­ence.

Un­ter­wurzacher said she loved com­ing to visit the Air­lie Beach team.

“I re­ally en­joy com­ing up to visit the Trash­bags and watch­ing them grow as skaters and as a league. They have im­proved so much in the 12 months since I’ve known them and are a real in­spi­ra­tion,” Un­ter­wurzacher said.

“I’m also re­ally glad to see so much in­ter­est from the com­mu­nity and the en­thu­si­asm of the freshies is ex­cit­ing. They are join­ing a re­ally great sport and I can’t wait to see how much they have im­proved again next time I come to visit.”
