ONE of the true glamour girls of Australian sport will be performing in Launceston this weekend.
Ellyse Perry has the rare distinction of having represented her country at two sports and will be in the star-studded New South Wales Breakers team which takes on the Tasmanian Roar at the NTCA Ground.
``Perry gets a lot of press because she plays international cricket and soccer but she is also a fantastic athlete and a really nice girl,'' Roar coach Julia Price said.
``She bowls a good pace, but the faster they bowl the faster they can go to the boundary!''
Price said with so many internationals in the visitors' squad, some top-quality women's cricket was guaranteed.
``People can come along and see the talent from NSW and hopefully in the next few years Tasmania will also have players in the national team alongside these girls.''
