Waving the white flag



TOWNSVILLE Crocs forward Cameron Tragardh has played with a lot of basketball teams and knows this Rockhampton Stadium Nightclub Rockets men's team has talent.

Tragardh arrived in Rockhampton on Tuesday at 5pm and was straight on the Rockets training court at 7pm.

"It's exciting,'' Tragardh said.

"I'm pumped to be here and this team is a good mix of youth and experience.

"We probably go nine deep.''

Tragardh is a journeyman in the QABL (Queensland Australian Basketball League) having previously played for South West, Townsville and Southern District clubs.

He realises this gives him a valuable insight into these club's game plans.

"I know the plays they run so I can cheat a bit and mess it up for them,'' said Tragardh, who is also well aware new coaches introduce new plays.

Tragardh makes his first appearance for the Rockets in a pre-season trial game against the Mackay Meteors at Hegvold Stadium on Saturday night.
