They head to Ireland on 8 July for 18 days with players from all over Australia to compete in a number of comps and tournaments.

The players will represent Australia in a number of different tournaments while over there.

Included will be a tri-nation tournament with Australia, Ireland and Great Britain, as well as several local and regional competitions.

The tour was open to all players who have qualified to play at a state representative level, so we are lucky to have such a strong number representing Port Stephens in this special team.

Due to there being players from all over the country attending the tour, preparation has been difficult as a team, so it has largely been up to the individuals to train, and keep up their fitness.

The players chosen from Port Stephens all play on a Monday night at the Salamander Bay fields and most of them will get in extra training as often as they can.
The experience level for these players ranges from two years to five years.

Tanya Napoli, Club Treasurer of Port Stephens OzTag, told News Of The Area, “We are a small Oztag Club in comparison to many others, so we are extremely proud of our players who are heading to Ireland to represent and promote the sport we love.”

“If anyone would like to help any of the players with their trip, feel free to contact the club via our Facebook page and one of our committee members will put you in contact with the players.”

News Of The Area wishes these representative players all the very best for their trip.
