WTA wishes Australian representatives good luck in NZ!

2013 Trans Tasman Representatives

Our Devils are all set to do battle with the Kiwis over in New Zealand in what has been hyped as the biggest Trans Tasman Series on record, with an unprecedented number of divisions up for the taking! 12 divisions will be contested at Trusts Stadium, Waitakere, Auckland from Tuesday, 5 February until Sunday, 10 February 2013.

The Youth divisions (18’s Boys and Girls and 20’s Boys and Girls) will played first on Tuesday, 5 February, Wednesday, 6 February and Thursday, 7 February. The Australian teams will be hopeful of continuing their strong performances in the Youth divisions, having claimed the 2009 and 2011 Youth Trans Tasman titles in recent years.Wollongong Devil Rob McCarthy will be looking to impress in his first Trans Tasman Series, under the close eye of fellow Devil, Australian Boys 18s Manager Glenn Hayes. Rebecca Mounsey and Rachel Beck will also be flying the Devils' flag in the Youth Division, representing Australia in the Women's 20s.

The five Masters divisions (Men’s and Women’s 30’s, Men’s 40’s, Men’s 50’s and Senior Mixed) will be next to represent our country, from Thursday, 7 February until Saturday, 9 February. Australia is the current Trans Tasman title holder in the Masters divisions following its 2010 Masters Trans Tasman Series win in Townsville.

The three Open’s divisions (Men’s, Women’s and Mixed) will round out the event and we are set for yet another exciting series between the world’s top two countries. Australia holds the current Trans Tasman title following their 3-0 series win in Mudgee in April last year and the Australian Open teams are also the World Cup champions following their wins at the 2011 World Cup. The Open divisions will battle it out on Friday, 8 February, Saturday, 9 February and Sunday, 10 February in what will be another cracking battle between the arch rivals.Devils Cara Zaremski and Michael Chapman will line up in the green and gold in the Mixed Open division, while Jess McCall and Matt Tope will represent in the Women's and Men's Open teams respectively.

Longtime referees Wollongong Michael 'Macca' McGrath and Barry 'Doc' McNamara will be in Aukland officiating matches and providing organizational support for the Australian contingent.

Wollongong Touch Association wishes all of the Devils the best of luck in New Zealand, and we anticipate that they will continue to represent our affiliate with great pride.
