The selections will be made by:

Pat Casey (Chair of Selectors)
Oliver Smith (Chair of RefCom)
Beth Davidson
Mark Nelson-Griffiths
Nick Payne

Appeals against selection decisions should be made, via Head Office, to Oliver Smith as Chair of RefCom within 2 days of publication of the selections and will be heard by a subcommittee of RefCom.
