Kyabram District Netball League’s representative side has been unveiled.

Coach Rachel Torney has selected a squad of 12 to take on a team from Tallangatta Netball League on May 24.

Ardmona’s Jaymie Harrison, Avenel’s Sarah D’Orria, Deanna Thompson, Jacinta Jamieson and Michelle Jamieson, Lancaster’s Melissa Clark, Murchison’s Jade Kay, Nagambie’s Sarah Shiels and Katie Sullivan and Undera’s Christine Feehan, Stacey Bailey and Larni Campbell are Kyabram’s squad.

There were no inclusions from reigning premier Rushworth, which only has a small number of players remaining from last year, or runner-up Stanhope.

Torney said there were a few Lions representatives who withdrew from the selection process.

Tallygaroopna, Merrigum, Violet Town, Girgarre and Longwood were also absent from the clubs represented in the side.

‘‘We decided in the end go with the 12 because you never know with injury and that sort of thing,’’ Torney said.

‘‘I went with the two trials and I had probably 18 girls to pick from, so it was unlucky for the few that missed out.

‘‘But after the first trial I had a few who decided they weren’t going to commit to it, which was a shame, but I guess that’s what happens.

‘‘We had a base core that still came and we didn’t really have a lot of new ones that came into the trials, just ones that weren’t available (for the first training session).’’

The team will have its first training session together tonight at Murchison.

Torney is also confident a practice match against Goulburn Valley Netball League club Mooroopna will go ahead and was in the process of organising another match up for the team.
