AUSTRALIA: Aussie youngsters prepare for Worlds

Under the watchful eye of international rider Bobby McMillan, the Australian Junior squad recently commenced regular mid week training sessions in preparation for the 2017 World Championships later this year.

The test team selectors will no doubt be watching the progress of “top end” riders Jack Norman, Todd Clarke, Matt Snowden, Darnell Thompson, Josh Carden and Matt Hurley before considering competitors from the U16 age category.

Of the lower gradings, early season performances would indicate that, Blade Blatchford, Jackson Dobie, Aussie Jones and Matt Forester are in line for their first international appearance in the eagerly awaited test match series against Great Britain.
