The Junior Wallabies assemble for their first camp of 2020 this weekend as they bid to go one better than last year's runner-up World Rugby U20s finish this season.
There are a host of returning faces from that successful team this year, including flanker Carlo Tizzano, winger Mark Nawaqanitawase and prop Angus Bell, as well as some exciting prospects from the Schools & U18s team that beat New Zealand in Hamilton in their 2019 clash.
The AIS facilities have reopened after closing earlierr this week due to the hazardous air quality present in Canberra, enabling the Junior Wallabies to forge ahead with training.
This week's conditions were bad enough to force the Brumbies to train in Canberra and the Junior Wallabies were monitoring the situation this week, with contingency plans in place had they needed to move.
There are other prospects who could loom as squad members later this year, ruled out due to Super Rugby trials.
"We’re excited to kick off our campaign in 2020 and get together as a group," Junior Wallabies coach Jason Gilmore said.
“There are a handful of players who are unavailable for selection due to Super Rugby trials, which gives us the opportunity to have a look at some more players."
This week's is the first camp of 2020, ahead of the Oceania U20 Championships and the World Rugby U20 Championships in Italy in the middle of the year.
