Men's heavyweight double looking sharp ahead of world champs

11:47 am on 26 October 2010

New Zealand rowing coach Calvin Ferguson believes one of his crews is set to surprise at this week's world championships on Lake Karapiro.

Ferguson coaches the men's heavy and lightweight double sculls and the lightweight singles.

Ferguson says the heavy weight double of Nathan Cohen and Joseph Sullivan who struggled early in the year, are now tracking very well and he believes the home crowd can play a big part in the outcome for the New Zealand crews.

The week long champs start on Sunday.
