The All-Australian side for 2019 has been named at the conclusion of the U18 National Championships that finished yesterday.
The Western Australian side were victorious given they won three of their four games, including a nail-biter in the decider against Victoria Country.
With only seconds to go, WA’s Regan Clarke marked 30m out directly in front and drilled it to win the game.
It marked a 10-year drought since their last championship win for the WA side.
Of the 23 players selected in the AA side, six of them were from Western Australia.
However, Vic Country did sport the most representatives with seven, while pick 1 hopefuls from Vic Metro Noah Anderson and Matt Rowell were also named.
