Riverina League has locked in representative football for at least one more season with confirmation of a clash with AFL Canberra.
Riverina League have managed to buck the trend of surrounding leagues and regions by keeping representative football alive.
Hume League pulled the pin on representative football after the Victorian Community Championships were canned, while Farrer followed suit when they were unable to find a suitable opponent.
Riverina League will play AFL Canberra at Robertson Oval on Saturday, May 16, where they will look to overturn last year's 21-point loss.
Riverina League president Chris Flanigan is pleased to keep representative football alive for another year.
"It is good, it buys us another year," Flanigan said.
"I'm not sure how long term it's going to be, it's getting harder and harder obviously but we're still keen to put the league out there. It's good to also reward the players who want to represent the league."
Riverina League clubs discussed the future of representative football back in November and clubs were happy to continue.
There will no open representative netball after a suitable opponent was unable to be found. Flanigan remains hopeful that netball will feature on the day with potential for under age representative games to be played.
