Five Rebels to Junior Wallabies camp

Five Melbourne Rebels young guns have joined the Junior Wallabies extended squad in camp on the Gold Coast ahead of next month’s Oceania Rugby U20s Championship.

Rebels Harrison Goddard, Esei Ha’angana, Trevor Hosea, Sama Malolo and Semisi Tupou have been included in an extended squad that descended on Runaway Bay for the third preparation camp.

The squad of over 40 players will continue Australia’s preparation for the Oceania tournament as well as the World Rugby U20s Championship to be held in France this June.

The camp comes as the Six Nations U20s continues to rage in Europe and the UK, with Australia’s Pool challengers for the World Rugby U20s Championship, Wales, currently sitting in fourth place following a shock loss 18-7 to Italy.

Junior Wallabies Head Coach, Jason Gilmore said: “Both players and the coaching staff are looking forward to continuing our preparation for our 2018 campaign.

“We have really started to develop our systems and patterns and we’re looking forward to giving more detail to the lads to enhance our preparation.

“We have a talented young group of players and we’re enjoying the hard work as we get ready for the Oceania Rugby and World Rugby U20s Championships,” Gilmore said.

The Junior Wallabies will be in camp at Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast until March 16.
