The selection races and selection criteria for the first 2016 Australia v New Zealand Junior Test-Match, to be held in Wellington NZ, are outlined in the following attachment. These selection criteria will be used to select the 2016 Australian Junior Bushrangers Team. The Test-Match races will be held on complex sand-dune terrain near the venue of the 2013 NZ World Cup races, and offer a great opportunity to develop skills in a unique, world-class terrain type that we do not experience commonly in Australia. These two IOF World Ranking Events, will provide some great experiences in a beautiful area. Athletes who wish to apply for Junior Bushrangers selection and are not a member of a Australian High Performance Squad, will need to also apply to become a squad member as soon as possible.
