EIGHT Albury-Wodonga players will represent Victoria Country at the Australian Country Championships at Shepparton this weekend.
Sam Daly, Chloe Jones, Sam Campbell, Laura Errey and Eryn Norie will represent the women while Jeremy Payne, Sam Quick and Brenton Newnham have been selected in the men's side.
Payne said the fortunes of the men would become clearer after clashes against Queensland and NSW.
"Vic Country didn't have a great year last season but we've got the home advantage and the side is looking forward it," Payne said.
"We play Queensland and NSW on Saturday and Sunday and that will probably determine how we go."
Victoria Country's women should also perform well.
