The Committee will consider several factors when choosing the players who will receive an invitation to represent Australia. The National Rankings (below) will factor strongly into this consideration, however a place in the top 10 will not guarantee a spot on the Australian squad. Other considerations will include recent form, character of a player to represent the ARA, team pairings and player impact on the longevity of the sport within the local and national community.
If you believe you will be in contention to receive an invitation to join the Australian team, and would seriously consider accepting such an invitation, please visit this link (men) or this link (women) to register your expression of interest.
