Selection Policy

The trumpets blare to announce the Medal events – Brownlow and Dally M.

The parades arranged for the AFL and NRL ultimate conclusion.

Nervousness flows from the winter tribes to the summer combatants.

Angst is worming through the veins and minds of the selectors within every cricket club across the nation.

Selection!!! Round 1!!!

So many conversations, musings, theories and hope that form the basis of decision making. With evidence, gut feel, validated improvement, history or optimism. Eventually grief and jubilation will be administered by the Selection Panel.

If the Selection Panel is not guided by a policy that delivers a comprehensive framework, then be prepared for a torrent of emotional conjecture and pain.

As a guide, please accept the following logic for clarity.

  1. Aims – establish what this is.
  2. Process – how selection is done and who is involved.
  3. Criteria – aspects of qualification.
  4. Additional – any other influencing factor.
