Southern Inland will take their first step into 15-a-side women's representative rugby on Saturday.
The best the region has to offer will try their hands at the traditional format of the game in a City-Country clash designed to showcase their talent to a larger audience.
Harriet Elleman, Apryll Green and Tess Staines are all based in the Riverina but have earned places in the ACT Brumbies Super W squad.
With the game to be played in Canberra, it is hoped being in the spotlight could lead to higher honours for some players.
Representatives from Wagga's four clubs, CSU, Ag College, Waratahs and Wagga City, make up the City outfit while Griffith, Tumut, Albury, Leeton and Hay provide players for the Country side.
City coach Mark Macarthur believes it is a great opportunity.
"We're trying to get it up to a 15s competition and once the participation rate is a little bit higher we should be able to get there," Macarthur said.
"The more we introduce 15s into Southern Inland the easier it will be to transition once we do go that way."
Southern Inland has already moved from sevens to the current 10s format.
Macarthur believes both sides will need to adapt to a more tactical game.
"The big difference is it is a strategic game rather than just the faster paced 10s game, which is all about finding holes," he said.
"In 15s you have to manipulate the defence in a way so you can best use your attacking edge."
Scrums are another change with more bodies involved. It's already been a focus area for improvement in the 10s competition.
Ag College players dominate the City squad with 10 of the starting places filled by members of the premiers and Macarthur was pleased with the interest level.
"We've got a few injuries throughout the region so it was inhibited a few but there are a lot of girls," he said.
"It's not all about winning a game of rugby on Saturday but it's an opportunity for 46 girls who haven't played 15s, or who haven't been given an opportunity to experience 15s, to get out there and give it a go.
"Country against City was suggested last year as it gives a little bit more experience within the region and they can take those skills back to their own clubs and pass on a bit of knowledge."
There are six members of unbeaten Griffith's side in the Country line up.
The Blacks have started the season strongly, but Macarthur isn't too worried.
"When you go from a 10s game to 15s it is a completely different method of play so it's more about the experience each will get from playing," he said.
"It's not about City versus Country or us versus them but providing an experience to the region."
