We have had to delay the 19s girls squad announcement pending selections for upcoming New Zealand teams. We have a number of girls that could possibly be selected that could affect our squad so we have no choice but to delay the announcements and avoid further disruption to the squad later in the year. National teams take precedence over Federation based teams. We realise this isn’t the best situation and we  will try and get information out to you as early as possible. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
