Australia's Men's National Team: The WIZARDS OF AUS, have been accepted to compete at this history making tournament. We have our 20 Squad members and two coaches, I.V. Anarchy and Annabelle Lecter, making our way to England to show the world what Australian Roller Derby is made of! But we do need your help, international derby isn't cheap and we hope to make our tour to this tournament as accessible as possible for the selected squad members.

Once again thank you all so much.
Here is what Lecter had to say about representing Australia as a coach at the Men's Roller Derby World cup:
"Watching and being a part of the growth of derby in Australia has been incredible, and witnessing the men - who were traditionally our refs, coaches, and other volunteers - come into their own as great players in their own right is downright awesome. Myself, Godjilla and I.V. had the honour of travelling the country to find the best of Australia's best, and now we're embarking on an epic journey to show what we have to the rest of the world."
First of which is: I.V. Anarchy whom has recently moved to VRDL. I.V. will be our line manager at the tournament and has traveled the country in search of Australia's premier male skating talent.
Here is what I.V. had to say about going to the First Men's Roller Derby World Cup:
"I feel incredibly honoured to have been chosen to help select and coach our nation's best male derby players to represent Australia at the first ever Men's Roller Derby World Cup. Having been involved with the coaching and bench managing of men's teams and leagues since 2012 I have thoroughly enjoyed contributing to the development of many of the skaters in our squad - watching their skills and teamwork come together as Wizards has been immensely rewarding for me personally and overall an amazing journey to be a part of."
MONKEY NUTS is our next and final Skater Trading Card in our series. He skates with the Sydney City SMASH and the power of Monkey is irrepressible (for all you monkey magic fans out there)

Here is what representing Australia means to Monkey Nuts:
"Really, really looking forward to this! The August bout against New Zealand was such a good experience so this World Cup and travelling with some of the best Australian skaters to take on the World's best is going to be amazing. I've trained hard for this chance and I'm looking forward to the challenge."
