Tathra's Adam Blacka has been named to captain the Far South Coast in the Burns Cup campaign.
Cricket Association president Charles Aggenbach believes the Blacka-led team to be among the strongest in the last decade and said the local contingent will hopefully give Monaro a touch-up when the competition runs in February.
The competition-leading Tathra club have the lion's share of selections with seven pick ups including quality all-rounder Pete Bennett, Chris Dwyer, Shannon Grass, keeper Geordie Gibbs and young guns in Lachlan Brennan and Jayden Heyhorn.
Bermagui big hitter Ben Tett will bolster the batting order alongside Merimbula power-batsman Dylan Jordan with Mikael Hulme also getting the nod out of the Knights.
Sean Smith, Jake Taylor and Morgan Jackson from Pambula will further strengthen the batting and bowling with two names out of Eden to concrete the squad as a powerhouse of local competitors.
Matt Bell and Patrick Kearney round out the roster with the duo to provide excellent service for the rep squad.
Mr Aggenbach praised each of the players picked as the best talent among the current crop of players, but said it had been hard to whittle down the selections with about 10 players knocking at the door of rep appearances.
"We had a really hard time trimming it down, but this has to be one of our best lists in six or seven years and we're really confident of making the finals," Mr Aggenbach said.
"I don't want to be too overconfident, but I think we can take it to Monaro."
