The trials attracted huge amounts of girls with a wealth of talent causing headaches for selectors. The carnival will be held in Brisbane on 20 and 21 September with more details to come.
“The sheer number of girls, and the talent they showed over the three selection trials reflects how strong the sport is becoming in the region" said Downs Rugby's Mitchell Simpson. "The sport has continued to grow over the past few years, and with a number of girls from the region already going on to represent Australia, I genuinely believe the Darling Downs will continue producing elite 7s talent".
