This year NSW Selection Trial will be held at Bungendore Showground and be run in the days before the annual Bungendore Trans Tasman Sheepdog Trial. The competition is run on the Trans Tasman course.
This Trial is held to determine who will be the top two workers and their dogs, that will represent NSW, at The Supreme, held at Dalby QLD, later this year.
At The Supreme two workers and their dogs, from each state will vie for a position on the Test Team.
From all of the states in Australia, four workers and their dogs are selected to represent Australia against New Zealand.
Some of the best in Australia will be present and competing throughout the week. One of those competitors, local businessman Paul Darmody who also supplies the sheep for both competitions, has competed for Australia in the past and will be contesting for a position this year.
