WEDDERBURN footballer Rohan McHugh and Mount Pleasant's Tim Hill have been named in the GrainCorp AFL Victoria Country 2 team. 

The central Victorian duo are in the final team of 24 to take on a representative team from the Victorian Amateur Football Association's Premier B to Division 4 competitions.

The team includes five players from both the Casey Cardinia Football League and the Yarra Valley Mountain District Football League. 

Eleven leagues in total will have players playing in the Country Victorian team. 

The team will be coached by John Cossar.

In last year's game Vic Country won by a point in what was a thrilling game. 

Cossar and his players will be aiming to win Saturday's game in similar fashion. 

The game will be played at St Albans Reserve in Geelong at 1.45pm. 

Former Bendigo Pioneer player Nick Mee was also selected in the Energy Safe AFL Victoria Country under-19 team.

The 22-player squad will also take to the field this Saturday against the Victorian Amateur Football Association under-19 side.

The Country team will be coached by Damian Sexton. 

More than 60 players attended the try-outs earlier this year with selectors settling on a final team to be captained by Benealla's Jake Palpratt.

Last year the team fell short and didn't win against their metropolitan opponents. 

The game will also be played at St Albans Reserve. 

It will kick-off at 11am.
