Great Southern Storm will send a talented squad to the metro and regional 15s development squad carnival in Perth next week.

Although the Nutrien Ag Country Football Championships were cancelled this weekend because of the lockdown in Perth and Peel, the 15s carnival is scheduled to go ahead.

The Storm will play four matches between Monday and Wednesday against other regional sides.

Craig Frost will coach the Storm along with Claremont Football Club board member and games record holder Darrell Panizza and Darren Michael.

The Storm will face Mid West on New Choice Homes Park in their first game at 1pm on Monday.

They will clash with Goldfields at noon on Tuesday, followed by a contest with Midlands at 2pm, both at Legacy Oval in Cockburn.

Their last game will be against Wheatbelt at Revo Fitness Stadium, starting at 9pm.

Rory Luscombe will be a key player for the Storm.

Frost said he was excited about the team they had assembled.

“I think it will be a pretty strong team, probably one of the strongest younger sides we have had in a while,” he said.

“Hopefully we can use our ball use, skill and speed, and all the boys come together and gel.

“It’s exciting to take the young group after missing out last year due to COVID.

“It will be good for them to get an opportunity to play higher-level footy.”
