Head Coach Cameron Edwards stated ‘It’s the dawn of a new era for the WA Hornets team and destiny is in our hands – we are looking forward to bigger and better things! This weekend we travel to Queensland to play the Pirates team which has three ex Australian players Will Thwaite, John Dekker and Shane Alexander – it will a great way to start the AVL season and a fantastic challenge for all of the WA Hornets athletes!’
