The Waratahs have unveiled their 2020 extended Super W squad and a new coach to go with it.
Former assistant Campbell Aitken will take over the coaching reins from Matt Evrard, becoming the team's third coach in as many seasons.
Aitken coached Sydney to a win in the annual Chikarovski Cup in 2018 before graduating into the Waratahs ranks.
The Scottish-born coach will also continue in his role as director of men's and women's rugby at Sydney's Easts club.
Aitken named a 47-player preseason squad on Wednesday night, with a mix of the familiar and the new in that number.
Former Aussie 7s player Georgie Friedrichs is among the group named for the 2020 season after a standout campaign for the Randwick Magic in the Jack Scott Cup this season.
Aitken said he was pleased to be able to name a mix of representation from around the state in the group.
“It’s been something that Matt [Evrard] and Tim [Rapp] have put a lot of work into in recent years and we’re beginning to reap the rewards,” Aitken said.
“We’ve got great representation from NSW Country along with some exciting young players, who all got their opportunity at the Chikarovski Cup – it’s a really valuable part of our pathway and selection process for Super W.
“There’s a wealth of experience with the likes of Grace [Hamilton], Emily [Robinson] and Mahalia [Murphy] along with plenty of players within or on the fringes of the national team.
“We’ve got 11 players at the Oceania Rugby Championships this month, so their experience in that tournament into a solid pre-season can only benefit them coming into Super W.”
The 2020 Super W schedule is yet to be confirmed but it is expected the competition will kick off in late March.
