    They don't have it any more. The ARU people thought it was counter-productive:

    - coaches hassled the people choosing the team to get their guys picked
    - it was felt that the players chosen were put on a pedestal and got unwarranted precedence for Opens rep teams the following year.

    I can't argue with that.

    The team was picked in 2006, 2007 and apparently 2008 also. The teams for 2006 and 2007 can be found on the net but not the 2008 team. The only thing that is known about 2008 is that Gill was the player of the tournament.

    If anybody has access to the names in the 2008 Merit Team please advise.
