Towering lock Dean Mumm was one of a handful of surprise selections in the Wallabies Rugby Championship squad after making his return to Australian Rugby after former Waratahs coach Michael Cheika lured him home. Mumm’s return followed a successful stint with the Exeter Chiefs in the UK where the 32-year-old captained the side in the Aviva Premiership. Now back on Australian soil, Mumm made himself known to Wallabies selectors with an impressive Rugby Championship campaign. The man known as “Mummy” has added 11 Test caps to his name in 2015, including three tries in the season, and led the Wallabies out in their World Cup pool match against Uruguay in Birmingham.
