The ARU have announced the Wallaby train-on squad. Seventeen Brumbies have made the grade:
Adam Ashley-Cooper, Alister Campbell, Mark Chisholm, Mark Gerrard, George Gregan, Nic Henderson, Stephen Hoiles, Julian Huxley, Stephen Larkham, Stirling Mortlock, Jeremy Paul, Clyde Rathbone, Julian Salvi, Guy Shepherdson, George Smith, Jone Tawake, Adam Wallace-Harrison
The Force have 14 players in the squad and the useless buggers from Queensland a little deserved nine.
Astonishingly the 13th placed Waratahs have NINETEEN players in there!
It’s that commitment to quality which makes Australian Rugby what it is today. Force fans would do well to feel hard done by.
