All RDCA Clubs are requested to nominate their players who would like to try out for this important representative side.
Several players from last season are no longer eligible so there are now opportunities for other to have the experience of playing representative cricket for the RDCA.
Nominations should be emailed to Craig Staggard, Team Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org with name, DOB, email address and contact phone number.
Craig can be contacted on 0407-509-424 if you have any questions.
Please encourage your eligible players to try out, as representing our association is a great experience.
