Usually wetake one or two teams of boys on tour between 14 and 18, where we haveboys placed into a 1st XI and 2nd XI, which allows players to play withand against players of their own level. The teams are picked on form ontour, and players do move between teams at times as the tour progresses.  The standard of play is excellent, with our teams playing against topschool and club sides in the UK. The level would be equivalent to GreenShield / Dowling Shield U16 rep cricket in Sydney/Melbourne or Bradman Cup country level for the juniors,  and just below grade level for the adult tour.
