Victoria’s state team, the Leadbeaters, are taking expressions of interest for a series of three exhibition/practice matches against the NSW Blue-Tounge Wizards to be held across Saturday 4th – Sunday 5th of March at the VQA’s Victorian Fantasy Tournament. The location for the tournament is still to be confirmed however it will be announced before selection for this Leadbeaters squad closes. If the likelihood of your attendance changes once the location is released, please send us an email at email@example.com to rectify your response.
These games are currently scheduled to be played however the VQA administration is waiting on final confirmation of the Blue-Tongue Wizards attendance. These games will be confirmed on the 5th of February.
It is expected that players selected for the squad attend regular team trainings to be held on weekday evenings or weekends at Fawkner Park or Caulfield Park. The most suitable time and location for training will be determined by the group after selection.
Applications close at 11:59pm on Tuesday the 7th of February. In lieu of try-outs due to this short time frame, selectors will be evaluating players on their written application, past performances throughout previous tournaments and seasons as well as game footage.
If you have represented Victoria during the 2016 Origin series you are still required to complete this form in full. Applications submitted are considered for these exhibition games only. Applications for future Leadbeaters games will be advertised specifically for those other games, including Quidditch Australia’s State of Origin Championship tournament in October.
