Boars president Todd Mitchell said from a club perspective it's great to see their players selected.

"They've been one of the most consistent sides since the competition started in Group 19," he said.

"Every year they're competitive. They've won a couple of grand finals, been in a couple more.

"It's a good reward and recognition for all the hard work they do.

"There were a couple of girls that are unlucky they didn't get through, and a couple more that weren't able to play and trial due to family commitments."

The Group 19 side will gather for three training sessions ahead of the Greater Northern Championships in Tamworth on Friday, July 5.
