WOMEN'S Southern Inland coach Mark Macarthur said his players are keen to showcase their talents in the 15-player game at next weekend's Brumbies Provinical Championships at Conolly Rugby Complex.
An initial 31-player squad will be trimmed down to the final 23 to compete in the tournament on Saturday, June 11 and Macarthur expects to have a tough task at the selection table.
There's some really good players in there, and it will depend on combinations at training between the players on who gets those final positions," he said.
"Tens (ten-a-side) has some strategy but it's about finding space, whereas in 15s you work in different units to create space and allow some set pieces.
"Some of the players have really taken to it. They feel like they've got a specific job to do and are able to refine how they play, which is enjoyable for them and for me.
"It's good to see it grow so much, and the ones that get involved with the 15s program convey they enjoy that."
Players will look to press their claims to be chosen in a country squad to play the Brumbies City squad in September.
