The Brumbies are letting us know that three ACT players have been picked for the Australian Under 20’s side to contest the Junior World Championship in Cape Town.
Lewis Holland, Les Makin and Tom Cusack have all been given the nod after starring for their club sides over the last 12 months.
For Cusack, it’s a huge opportunity to be back in national colours after missing the 2011 Australian Schools calendar through injury.
“It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to represent Australia, I played schoolboys in 2010 but got injured last year so this is exciting for me,” Cusack said.
