Saturday April 10th vs ACT @ 1pm
Wednesday April 14th vs Queensland @ 3pm
Competing in the tournament will be six state teams from across Australia: Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia, and the ACT. New South Wales, the four-time defending champion, will look to protect its’ title again against all comers. This tournament has particular importance to the Victorian side, as Victoria has played NSW in each of the last three Grand Finals, only to come up short each time. This year however, Victoria will have home field advantage.
