Southern Inland hopes a new representative format will increase opportunities.
The Brumbies Provincial Tournament returns in 2021 with Southern Inland out to win a 10th straight title over the June long weekend
After the season, players will then get their chance to be part of the Country side to take on Canberra's City outfit, from which a ACT Griffins team will be named to play in Adelaide.
Former Bill Castle Medal winner Noa Rabici used last year's rep program to make the shift to Canberra this season.
Coach Nick McCarthy is back for another season and believes the changes will allow Southern Inland's best to show their talent to a wider network.
"It is exciting seeing some of the changes at the Brumbies level this year," McCarthy said. "Last year, even without a provincial championship there were some good opportunities for guys who wanted to play rep footy.
"The City-Country game in Canberra was a great opportunity and a guy like Noa has rolled straight into a first grade program and the Griffins side. When players see that sort of outcome if you put your hand up and have a crack then there is always that opportunity there."
Nominations will be called for in May but McCarthy and assistant Jonno Andreou also intend to ask other well performing players to make themselves available.
