Police are stumped
COFFS Harbour criminals beware... don't conduct your shifty business anywhere near the Coffs Harbour indoor cricket centre this weekend.
Starting today, the 18th annual NSW Police indoor cricket titles will be held at the Resort Indoor Cricket Centre, Coffs Harbour, with around 150 members of the State's police force in action.
Around a dozen teams from across NSW will compete for the title as top dog in cop indoor cricket circles.
Tournament director Peter Sanders says the on-court action will be tense.
"Mate, it's fair dinkum, there is no love lost out there," Sanders said.
"At the end of the game we are friends, but during the game it is serious.
"The standard is pretty high, we have a few players who play first division outdoor cricket and some who play in the Australian indoor cricket league."
A NSW Police indoor cricket side will be selected at the completion of the titles on Sunday afternoon.
That side will make up the nucleus of the NSW side at the next Australia and New Zealand Police games in 2007.
