Australian Schoolgirls Open and U16 Sevens announced

The Australian Schools Rugby Union ‘ASRU’ is delighted to announce the Australian Schoolgirls merit teams for 2023, U16 and Open.
The Open girls and invited U16s will participate in a two-day selection and development camp in September, from where the Australian Schoolgirls team will be selected and will participate in the Global Youth Sevens in December.
We celebrate and acknowledge the achievements of our Honorary merit team consisting of schoolgirls who are part of the Rugby Australia Youth Commonwealth Games team, and Amahli Hala (QLD) and Ava Wereta (QLD) who were seconded to join the Australia A team currently competing in Japan.
We wish the girls all the best as they head to Trinidad and Tobago in August to compete at the Youth Commonwealth Games.
