The Rest of the World team, captained by Darren Gehrke, will see players from the Philippines, PNG, Samoa and Malaysia face off against a strong Vietnam outfit captained by Lam Trinh.
TRL Australia’s Executive Chairman, Tom Longworth, is proud to see the game come this far, commenting on the diversity of the competition, ‘The inaugural TRL International Series is a great step forward for the game and a reflection of the multicultural nature of the sport. High participation rates from players with foreign heritage has created a definite avenue to introducing the game to an international market’.
