Changes to curl­ing squad

Auckland City Harbour News - - SPORT -

A new-look na­tional women’s curl­ing team will bat­tle it out for the Paci­ficAsia cham­pi­onship ti­tle in China next month with ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers un­avail­able.

The all-Auck­land side is made up by Mt Eden’s Chelsea Far­ley and Tessa Far­ley and cen­tral Auck­land’s Thivya Je­yaran­jan and Waver­ley Tay­lor.

The Far­ley sis­ters and Je­yaran­jan all played for the na­tional open side two years ago, but it is a big step up for Tay­lor who was named in the ju­nior women’s team just a few weeks ago.

Coach Liz Matthews will fill in as a fifth player if re­quired. They will take on Aus­tralia, China, Ja­pan, Kaza­khstan and Korea in Shang­hai from Novem­ber 11 to 19. The top gold and sil­ver medal­lists will qual­ify for the World Women’s Curl­ing Cham­pi­onship in Canada next year.
