Melbourne Vixens goaler Emma Ryde and Training Partner Kate Eddy are among five Victorians who will represent the 21/Under Australian team on a tour of Fiji this month.

he Tour will see Australia play matches against Fiji, New Zealand and Samoa from 11-13 January, with the top two sides to play off again on Saturday 14 January.

Fiji will offer more international match play experience as well as an opportunity for the girls to build on the on-court connections put into place at Netball Australia’s Centre of Excellence camp in Canberra last year.

This tour will also present Ryde and Eddy a chance to state their claim for a place in the 2017 Australian Netball World Youth Cup squad to be named in April.
