The original squad of 21 was finalised down to 15 today, and National Selector Shawn Flegler believes the team has what it takes to compete with the world's best.
“This is going to be one of the most tightly contested World Cups in recent times and we have chosen 15 players that we believe are capable of leading Australia to victory.
“This is an incredibly exciting time for this team, with the chance to stake their claim as one of the most successful sporting teams in Australian sport.”
