The Australian team will use this carnival as the last chance to play together as a team, before competing in the World Cup in South Africa during July.

On June 8 and 9, Australia will play against invitational sides from the south-east Queensland and Western Downs regions in a similar format to the World Cup competition.

Men will play against men, and women will play against women under a mix of Australian and international rules.

Normal teams have six players to a team, but this competition will have eight players with reserves in both sections to interchange between chukkas.

It has been a steady start for Stanley Rivers this season, with the club competing at four carnivals so far.

Stanley Rivers was the runner-up in its grade by one goal at the first three before losing the semi-final by one goal at the most recent carnival.
