"In general they’ve all been in consistent and solid form and doing what we want them to be doing at this stage which is terrific, particularly those who have been re-selected into the squad."

The 18-person squad will take part in a selection camp at the Australian Institute of Sport between May 5 and 7. 

The final 12-player team for the Commonwealth Games will be announced at the end of the camp.
