Agree with last Anon that any 20 players could make it on a given day. That is the strength of the Victorian competition. I was at the ECC and have seen the Vic players over a number of years. Am not one of the coaches or selectors. As I previously said , all the Vic ECC kids played well over the tournament, some a little better than others. The Tassie kids in question played well but certainly were not stand out better than all the Vic kids in my opinion. you could make an argument to leave them out but also, others could make an argument to leave them in. it is not easy to select as all the girls are all very good. The Tassie kids have talent and I don't believe that those questioning the selection are disputing this. The question is more on principle. The 3 Tassie kids would walk into the Tassie state team, no question. What I am about to say is no disrespect to other states but the best 20 Vic kids would rank reasonably high across the best in Australia but because they live in Vic, 11-20 miss out on the opportunity for national champs. In fact there have been questions in the past as to whether Vic should send two teams. So now we have the situation where three girls who could easily go to Nat Champs for Tas taking a Victorian spot which means three very unlucky Victorians miss out. On principle , there are a lot of people who don't agree with this. When we select our club teams, we look at imports against club players and where the skill is of a similar level, we choose the club person first. Now the selectors will say in their opinion the Tassie kids are better which is why they were selected. In my humble opinion, while certainly talented and fantastic and lovely kids, they are not clearly better than the Victorians and on that basis, I would have selected differently but that is just my opinion and i am not charged with that responsibility. Now that the team is selected, I will be right behind all the kids that will represent us and hope to cheer home a victory for the Vics!
