Southland Country is selected from players that play in their sub-union day tournament which was won by Eastern in 2021 and Town (Metropolitan) is made up of players from the 5 Premier clubs and 2 Division 1 clubs in the Invercargill area. In 2021, Town played eventual Meads Cup champions South Canterbury and Country beat Otago Country before Town won the annual fixture between the two sides.
