Nine out of 12 current Australian Under 20’s players from New South Wales represented their respective Shute Shield First Grade sides over the weekend, as they continue their individual preparations ahead of the Oceania Rugby Under 20’s Championships in May.
With a strong contingent of Australian Under 20’s players sporting First Grade jumpers over the weekend, Head Coach Adrian Thompson believes their experience in the top tier of Club Rugby will hold them in good stead moving forward.
“It’s great to see that most of the New South Wales players have now earned their first grade stripes and it will give them a lot of confidence ahead of the Oceania Rugby Championships.
The Aussie team will assemble at Bond University on the Gold Coast at the end of this month, as they prepare to take on Samoa, Japan and New Zealand in the Oceania Rugby Junior Championships.
