Head coach Andrew Bascome commented, “These trial matches will allow the coaching staff the opportunity to have a close look at some players that may not have been included at the National level in the past. Some players from previous matches and tournaments have been omitted at this point to allow inclusion of others, but could still factor into consideration for selection into the formal training pool.”
