Rugby Australia have announced a 27-player Australian Under 16’s Development Squad.
The squad comes following the U16 National Championships, with the NSW Waratahs taking out the title with a 40-10 win over the Queensland Reds.
The squad will assemble in camp at The Southport School on the Gold Coast from the 9th to the 12th of December.
It will be coached by Rugby Australia High-Performance staff, along with Rugby Australia support staff.
This will include current Junior Wallabies Head Coach Nathan Grey, and Junior Wallabies assistant coaches Nic Henderson and Shannon Fraser, with a focus on building individual skills whilst focusing on mental and physical preparation.
As expected, the Waratahs dominate the squad with 17 selections after they went unbeaten throughout the tournament.
