Wagga’s Dylan Martin has inched within striking distance of making the Australian junior team which is heading to October’s Sultan of Johor Cup in Malaysia.

Martin cracked the squad of 27 this week and will have to make the final 18 in order to book his ticket to Malaysia.

His selection comes after a stunning performance at the Under 21 Australian Championships, where his NSW side claimed gold.

Martin made his Australian debut in January 2016, when he suited up for the national futures squad.
