I would have thought that next to impossible. You can award the right to a place as a prize and you can have a minimum standard. Beyond that you just have the subjective of who you might expect to do well and who might most benefit from the experience. At the end of the day, they are only tournaments, so other tournaments are available even if a poor subjective choice was made.LozCooper wrote: PP said that the critical point was that people must know what they need to do in order to be selected.

I think we've seen with the existing selection process, that where there's been a player some way in front of his or her contemporaries that player gets the invites every year as they move through the age groups. But if you want a squad of strong young adult players at the end of the junior process, you need more than one in each age group, so spreading the invites or having more than one qualifier makes more sense.
