Fitz, If the Status Quo had remained here is what would have played out in my mind anyhow.. The Queensland Team would have been decided by 7 past the post with Roll offs somewhere in Brisbane. Most probably at Mt Gravatt? The Invitational Team would have been selected in North Queensland, and as we have found out, with a roll off at Burdekin and a roll off at Innisfail, most probably 7 past the post as well based on previous years. The issue with this is that QLD is NEVER putting on the Field its Best Team… (Excluding the Dream Team Debate Completely) We are always compromising our position. The Other key Issue is the TBA have made it clear to TBAQ that the Queensland Team MUST be our Primary Team and our selection/roll off process must reflect our efforts to meet this criteria. While in juniors and Seniors TBA allows a dedicated North and South QLD position in Rachuig this is no longer the Case. The Goal of the Current format is to get the BEST 7 regardless of geographic location into the Queensland team. I truly believe as per your post Fitzy that this format will see some break down of the NQ/SQ thing. I can assure you there is a lot to be learnt from bowling with guys from NQ as I am sure they can learn a heap from bowling with perhaps more players from down our way. It is interesting If you look at the Averages this year and Take the Top 7 Men and Women from Invitational and from Queensland you don’t have to be a Rocket scientist to work out that the current system is hurting Queensland. I think all so, just having read over the NQ Rachuig By Laws that there is still some confusion as to the fact that there has not been a North Queensland Rachuig Team for Two Year now. A point that I think is still misunderstood. Hope this Helps.
