Illawarra Division Representative Squad

The Illawarra Division Rugby League have announced a 19-man squad to contest the 2016 CRL Tier 1 Country Championships.

Coach Wade Forrester will attempt to lead the squad to their fourth consecutive title.

Several squad members have been a part of all three successful campaigns, with some new faces introduced to maintain the high standards the team has set over recent years.

“I am very happy with the quality of the squad again this year. The new faces are very capable footballers and we believe will fit into the culture this team has developed in recent years. This team will provide a strong defence of our title”, Forrester commented.

Illawarra will face the winner of Central Coast Centurians and Riverina on Saturday 28 May at Dubbo, following a round one bye.
