I just checked with Hob (because I was surprised that the list wasn't out as of 10:00pm on the 15th) and he said to be patient and that it would come out tomorrow. I'd say another day of anxious waiting but apparently those that haven't made it have been called by the selectors and told already. I'm still really keen to see who else has made the squads...

Bigger squad hey? Well, I guess I'm all for it, as it will probably improve my chances of selection greatly, being a cusp player. But its a lot of players. We will almost need injuries to thin the ranks out a little. And its hard to imagine that the cusp players will be able to cover for sacha or Matt being injuried. It partially hurt the team I hear because they were both designated huckers and so the burden fell harder on the remaining huckers.

I guess squad size is going to depend on the depth of the players. I'm eagerly awaiting news...

ps: edited to add comments about squad size

Oh baby. How sharp is this 'selection camp' in Canberra going to be?

That is a great list of players, i'm already thinking about the desperate 1 on 1 contests that will be going on all weekend as players stake their claim.

I am pumped!

Who's going to do the State-by-State breakdown for us?

Should we start a separate WUGC2008 Selection thread?

I think the men's squad is a bit more diverse and evenly spread than the womens. Firestorm/QLD got 7 of the guys slots.

Mens breakdown, worked out as per women.
I don't know the men as well so this is based SOLELY on Nats 2007 rosters even if the players are associated with a particular club (hence discrepancy between Chris's figure for Firestorm and mine).

NSW   17
VIC   13
QLD   7
ACT   6
WA   4
OS   3
SA   1
TAS (?)   1

Fakulti   10
Heads of State   10
Barefoot   5
Fyshwick United   5
Didn't play   4
Firestorm   4
I-Beam   4
Sublime   4
Chilly   3
Karma   2
Wollongong   1

Anyway enough wasted work time so far today!

That Mens squad is fucking stacked! The women's looks hell skilled too. I'm pumped to the shiz niz right now even though I'm on the chump end of that team! As Mike mentioned, it will be sweet to watch the battles that ensue. Good to see that HOS' poaching of 2 selectors paid dividends! yayah!

Has there been any official ballpark figure of Open and Mixed squads?

The upcoming training camp should be awesome, especially seeing that it will be at the AIS.

Yeah Chris you are dead right about the Australian Institute of Sport venue.

Last time it was such a memorable and significant place to launch the process of building the Australian teams from. It made me, and i think lots of people feel a real sense of legitimacy about our sport, our teams and our goals.

I'm remembering and visualising at the same time, it is great.
