Victorian Men’s
State Squad

THE VIC THUNDER

Each season our Men’s team contest a series of interstate Test matches.

The Test Series competition culminates with all States and Territories taking each other on at the Australian National Sides Championship.

The introduction in 2021 of the City v Country women’s and men’s events now serve as a new format state team trial system, after which the state selectors release the team who will play in each Test Series. All players selected to participate in City v Country receive a numbered ‘cap’ in recognition of their selection.
