TASMANIA Police may not boast the same numbers as their mainland counterparts, but Burnie Constable Jack Howe reckons they will hold their own in the 2012 National Police Football Championships in Hobart this week.
Constable Howe is one of three North-West officers representing Tasmania in the cup, which will see state teams compete at North Hobart oval on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Constable Howe said while Tasmania didn’t have enough interested officers to be able to hold tryouts, he thought their chances were good.
“We will definitely hold our own against most states but South Australia and Victoria will be tough, they’re always the strongest teams,” he said.
Being one of the only North-West officers involved, Constable Howe said it had been difficult to make training sessions in the lead-up to the competition.
However, he said the championships were more about friendship and camaraderie than competition.
“I play football myself so it’s always a good way to end the season and I also get to catch up with some of the officers I met in the academy,” he said.
“The games are always good spirited and there’s a great atmosphere … so it’s good for camaraderie and a bit of health and fitness.’
