Ross Nicholson, Ivan Vicelich, Tino Christie, Paul Urlovic and Mark Elrick have been selected for the All Whites Squad to represent New Zealand in a tour which will see them play games against Thailand, Singapore, Oman and Malaysia in a build up to the Confederations Cup in Mexico where the All Whites will play group games against U.S.A., Germany and Brazil.
We wish them every success while they are away. Central will, however, find life tough during their absence as we are unlikely to get dispensation while the are gone and hopefully they will still see the club on top when they return.
Fred de Jong, Michael Ridenton and Noah Hickey were other players in the Central Squad who must have been very close to selection.
The trio have been excellent this season and were tipped for selection by many.
