Southern Cross Challenge Update

Team Selection
Selectors have published this year’s Southern Cross Team which will be officially approved shortly subject to ONZ’s appeal deadlines passing. This year’s team features athletes from Southland, PAPO, Nelson, Wellington, Red Kiwis, OBOP, Hawkes Bay, Waikato, Auckland and Counties Manukau – members from 2/3s of ONZ’s Clubs! 

It is the first time in a number of years that we have seen members from Red Kiwis and Waikato, and possibly the first time we have seen a Southern Cross representative from Southland. 

Team Management
ONZ is proud to announce that the management team for this year’s event has been announced. Following feedback from last year, the team will consist of 3 managers and 3 coaches with one of the managers taking on the role of coach in Australia.  Team management will be lead by Suzy Carryier (Auckland) assisted by veteran manager Shaun Cantwell (Southland), and Rachel Smith (Bay of Plenty). Rachel was a coach last year and while she will not be involved with preparations, she will move into the coaching team on arrival in Australia. The coaching team is a team of familiar faces with the return of Michael Croxford (Nelson) and Briana Steven (Canterbury) and the inclusion of Tane Cambridge (Canterbury).
