ALBURY-WODONGA Bandits star Darcy Harding will swap the bandits blue for the green and gold later this month.

The emerging forward has been selected to represent Australia at the 3x3 Asia Cup from October 27-29 in Mongolia.

He’ll join a raft of SEABL stars on the team, including Owen Odigie (Kilsyth), Lucas Barker (Dandenong) and Andrew Steel (Nunawading).

Despite battling some nagging injuries, Harding impressed for the Bandits in the 2017 season.

He averaged 11 points per game and four rebounds, while shooting an impressive 34 per cent clip from three.

A skilled power forward who is capable of putting the ball on the floor, Harding’s size and skills should translate well to the three-on-three game.

Australia will face Turkmenistan and Mongolia for a chance to progress through to the quarter-finals. 

Nunawading and SEABL legend David Biwer will coach the men’s team, while Matt Paton will mentor the women’s team.
