Finucane honoured to represent Country

Melbourne Forward Dale Finucane says it will be an 'honour' to represent Country when Trent Barrett's side face City in rugby league's annual fixture in Wagga Wagga.

After making his representative debut for Country last year, the 23-year old will add to his representative experience on Sunday.

"It's obviously an honour to represent country New South Wales for the second time this year," Finucane said.

"The calibre of players we have in our team is really good with a good mix of youth and experience."

Finucane has no doubts on the value of the City-Country fixture, explaining the worth it holds for many country towns across the state.

"I remember as a kid if an NRL game came close to your hometown there was a real buzz about the place," Finucane said.

"For the young kids to be able to see the calibre of players coming out and playing in their hometown will be really exciting."

Melbourne Storm will have 15 NRL listed players and one U20 Thunderbolt represent the Club across the weekend's action. To see a full list of the teams, please click here.
