In the final meet for the domestic season 5 MattyB DEPT athletes will look to finish off a season close to perfection for the squad.

Sprint queen Melissa Breen along with 400m Hurdle pair Lauren Boden and Brendan Cole come into this meet with Commonwealth Games ‘A’ qualifiers and with victory at nationals will lock in an automatic spot for the Commonwealth Games later in the year.

Joining them will be the recently crowned Stawell Gift winner Tom Burbidge who will run in the 400m (possibly 200m) in what will be a great experience for him against the best 1 lap runners in the country. With a personal best of 48.28 Tom will be looking to put a big dent in that in Perth.

Tarin Nevin will join her hurdle partners and will be looking to again make it through to the national final. Tarin is fresh from her latest victory which saw her take out the NSW State Championships in a season best.

Actions starts on Friday.
