Congratulations to Simon Hockey (Jamestown) and Greg Fletcher (Hyde Park) who have been named as members of the team to represent Australia in the prestigious MacRobertson Shield competition to be held in California in 2017. Well done also to Dwayne McCormick (Norwood) who has been named as reserve. Other team members are Ian Dumergue (WA), Malcolm Fletcher (Vic), Robert Fletcher (Vic) and Stephen Forster (Vic), with Trevor Bassett (NSW) as the other reserve. It must be a rare occurrence that three brothers are named in a national team at one time, not just in croquet but any sport! Well done everyone.
