NET­BALL: Net­ball teams from across the south­west gath­ered in Roma on Fri­day for the south­west net­ball se­lec­tion tri­als.

The aim of the trial com­pe­ti­tion was to se­lect two mixed south­west teams to com­pete in the state fi­nals in Bris­bane in May.

Six 13-15-year-old teams and seven 16-19-year-old teams played a se­ries of round robin test games, while se­lec­tors watched on.

Play­ers trav­elled from as far away as Cun­na­mulla, Charleville and St George for a shot at the re­gional team.

“We have got play­ers from dif­fer­ent lev­els from across the re­gion, with some stronger than oth­ers,” con­vener Su­san Price said.

“It’s pleas­ing to see the im­prove­ments across the board in all of the play­ers. Charleville in par­tic­u­lar has re­ally im­proved.”
