Tasmanian forward Welch joined the National Senior Men’s Squad for 2019, having debuted for the Kookaburras against world number two in Darwin in September 2018.
Welch, who scored in his second cap against Malaysia, had helped Tasmania to a memorable triumph at the Under-21 National Championships only a few months earlier where he was named Player of the Tournament.
He was in the 2018 National Development Squad, playing in the Australia A series against Malaysia in August 2018 in the lead-up to his debut. He was also part of Australia’s team at the 2016 Junior World Cup where he scored in the quarter-finals against the Netherlands.
