Balmain is in Region 8 which is made up from two Zones: Inner City and South West Metropolitan.
Qualification for the Regional Championship was via performances at the Zone Championship.
Important information updated on 30th january regarding Regional can be found here. This has been supplied by the Region Secretary for your reference:
