Walker the wildcard for Brumbies

Brisbane Tens
by Sam Phillips

Having starred at the inaugural Brisbane Tens, former Wallabies star Andrew Walker will again lace up the boots for his beloved Brumbies this weekend.

Walker was arguably the pick of the wildcards at last year's tournament and he has again been named as part of coach Dan McKellar's 26-man squad.

At the conclusion of the Tens the Brumbies will keep heading north, taking on the Chiefs at the Sunshine Coast on February 14.
