Eight Brumbies named in Australian U20’s Preliminary Squad

The BMW Australia U20s will come together for their first training camp ahead of the World Rugby U20s Championship in Georgia in June.

Brumbies U20’s players Angus Allen, Brodie Leber, Angus Wagner, Darcy Swain and Leni Ikitau along with Brumbies contracted players Nick Jooste, Ryan Lonergan and Rob Valetini have all been selected in the 48-man squad.

The squad will come together at Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast this April (4-7) as part of their continued buildup under new Head Coach Simon Cron.

Cron has selected a preliminary squad of 48 players, who have impressed in the opening rounds of the Super U20s Championship, while it also contains four members of the Qantas Australian Men’s Sevens squad.

BMW Australia U20s Head Coach, Simon Cron said: “This camp will be the first opportunity we have to get content across to our players, as well as skill evaluation and execution. It will be a high intensity camp and we need to tick the box on a lot of critical stuff.

“We will be putting guys into different scenarios and seeing how they play as well as start to develop our culture and Identity as a group.

“The door is still open for players in the Super U20s Championship as we are always watching and looking for players who will suit the way we want to play the game.”

The players returning from the BMW Australia 2016 squad include; Sham Vui (Western Force U20s), Jordan Uelese (Melbourne Rebels U20s), Harry Hockings (Queensland U20s), Ryan McCauley (NSW Waratahs), Angus Scott-Young (Queensland Reds), Rob Leota (Melbourne Rebels U20s), Liam Wright (Queensland U20s), Harry Nucifora (Queensland U20s), Liam McNamara, (Aussie 7s), Nick Jooste (Brumbies U20s), Sione Tuipulotu (Melbourne Rebels U20s), Izaia Perese (Queensland Reds), Simon Kennewell (Aussie 7s) and Jack Maddocks (Melbourne Rebels).

Aussie 7s speedster Henry Hutchison is set for his first opportunity in the Australia U20s, after missing the 2016 season due to commitments with Sevens program.

Australia will host the Oceania Rugby U20s Championship on the Gold Coast against Fiji, Samoa and New Zealand, kicking off on April 28.
