Australian national team squads trimmed after first selection trials

With 4 weeks of Australian national team selection trials completed for the upcoming 2018 Asia-Pacific Fistball Championships,¬†our esteemed Head Coaches – Tommy Helber & Bianca Kruck – have trimmed the men’s and women’s playing squads to 14 and 12 players, respectively.

Of the 26 players still in the mix for both teams, a whopping 13 of these could potentially be making their Australian fistball debuts – 5 in the men’s team and 8 in the women’s.
