The Teams at the Division 1 Championships at Riverview College from 7th to 14th July–see draw details elsewhere –will be–
NSW 1 and 2
Qld 1 and 2
The Combined States Team (CS) is picked by the Australian Selectors from players in any state who have not made their state team, but who the selectors think are worthy of a second chance.
Once they are at the Championships they have the same opportunities as any player in any of the other tams for selection in one of the Australian Teams. Without fail every year there are some who make either the Australian Schoolboys Team or the Australian Schools Barbarians Team (Australia A)
With the opportunities this year to play against NZ and Tonga in September and, then to have the chance for the UK tour, the incentives are very strong.
The Combined States Team will be announced on this web site on July 1st and the team will assemble at Riverview for a preparation camp on July 4th.
