After the Championships, a side will be selected to represent NSW Country at the Australian Country Championships in Geraldton (WA) from 5th - 13th January 2018.
Piper commented on the Championships, “This competition provides an opportunity for players to test themselves against some challenging opponents. It is a great experience for some of our players to be challenged against seasoned country cricketers,” Piper said.
“As a group, we are working towards competing in each and every moment and every opportunity we may get. Good players compete sometimes, great players compete all the time. We never know when our opportunity may come, that is irrelevant, it is our job to be ready to grab that opportunity when it arises.”
