Selectors Invitation Wrap-up.
The Second Selectors Invitation Tournament was recently held at Cairnlea.
It was run over two days with 31 players competing in four round robin blocks followed by finals. Entry was by way of invitation and these were issued to a range of established and rapidly developing players. It was really pleasing to have two players under the age of 21 in the field.
Victorians victorious in GC ISS
A narrow win against Western Australia on the final day of competition saw Victoria retrieve the GC Interstate Shield.
The competition was very tight. Matches were best-of-two, and in all the tests there were many 1:1 draws - overall, more than a third of the matches were drawn (119 out of 300).
