The team to represent Victoria A University at this year's Tournament is, with one exception P. Naidu (from the senior side), comprised of players from the 2nd and 3rd teams.

The team is as follows:—
  • P. Naidu: Consistently plays an outstanding game at right wing for the senior side. He is very fast and has superb ball control.
  • S. George: Always maintains a tirless defensive game at centre half. This player tackles hard and well.
  • R. Holland: At wing plays a good game and centres the ball well.
  • D. Saxton: Back, has a powerful kick, and uses his weight to advantage.
  • A. Gopalan: Shows good form in his goal-keeping position.
  • D. Law: Plays a fine game at halfback.
  • C. Louis: Is very nippy at centre forward and takes a centred ball very well.
  • M. Clements: Is a very tenacious player at full-back.
  • B. Goffman: Half-back, has missed several games this season due to an injury, but is now back on his old steady form.
  • T. Steiner: Half-back, is a keen lower grade player who always produces a fine game.
  • J. Youles: Plays a solid positional game at half-back.
  • B. Reddy: Has represented Victoria at Tournament on various occasions. He has just recovered from the effects of an injury to his right knee but should be in good form.
