    Actually, I was also confused over the criteria over selection...I know for a fact that Julian Anthony is certainly NOT too old for the squad since Glenn Warfe & Eva Ratanasena have also been selected, but could anyone enlighten us on how the squad was selected?

    As for Spoorti Rattan, she is in Year 12 (HSC exams coming up!!!), and has not participated in many (if any at all) tournaments this year. According to her dad, she is working very hard on her studies, but will continue playing in the future.
