Contests against the Victorian rivals will be played on Monday July 9 (Victoria Country at Metricon Stadium) and Friday July 13 (Victoria Metro at the Gabba) in Queensland.

Familiar surnames in the McDonald’s SA Under-16 squad include James Borlase (Sturt), who is the son of Port Adelaide premiership star Darryl Borlase and Luke Edwards (Glenelg), who is the son of Crows premiership hero Tyson Edwards.
