orientmasterFeatured News, High Performance News, News

An agreement has been made to have an Australian v New Zealand Test Match at the Australian Championships Carnival starting this weekend. The test will be held over three events: Australian Sprint, Middle and Long Distance events.

Each country will have a team of three in the following class: M21E, W21E, M20 and W20. The Bushrangers and the Pinestars will be competing for the Key-Aspin Trophy which is currently held by Australia. This test match series provides a great opportunity for Australia’s resident senior and junior elites to get some international competition. New Zealand have announced a strong team and we can expect a very strong challenge from the Pinestars even though we are competing in our home terrain.
