The Junior Wallabies have announced their squad for their second camp of the year ahead of the U20 Oceania Championship.
The squad have come together at the AIS in Canberra following their initial camp in late February.
Rebels standout Lukas Ripley and Reds fullback Mac Grealy are amongst the players named in the squad, with Junior Wallabies coach Nathan Grey putting particular focus on building understanding of themselves and the game-style they want to play in June
"We want to guys to have a better understanding of our game model and how we want to play, which was initiated in camp one," Grey told Rugby.com.au
"We also want the guys to get to know each other better and also understanding themselves as young guys coming through, wanting to be better footy players and educating them in that space.
"For us as a team, perfect fundamentals are really important. They are the building blocks of success in Rugby, doing the simple things really well consistently is actually really difficult to achieve so showing guys what success looks like from a skill and execution perspective."
Grey stressed the importance of keeping it simple as they look to embrace the opportunity, having missed the past two seasons due to COVID, looking to make up for lost time.
"We're very aware we only have a short time with them so just being in contact with them about how we want to play whilst not making things too complicated is key. The game doesn't need to be super complicated so giving them simple structures on how we want to play and matching that with their skill set is what we're doing," he believes.
"You've got to feel for them because a lot of them have missed out for the last couple of years. There are a few guys I had in the program last year who never got the chance to play at the Junior Wallaby level and for a lot of those kids, that's the highest level of footy they are going to play around representing their country.
"It's a huge thing to miss out on but a huge opportunity for them so the guys here at the moment are very cognitive of that and want to show the guys who missed out that they are holding the flag now and are keen to be the best they can possibly be."
With the likes of Fraser McReight and Noah Lolesio graduating from the program to the Wallabies in recent years, Grey was hopeful the current group could take inspiration and continue their development.

"It's awesome to see. Those guys are examples of the Rugby Australia program and the pathways and that's fantastic," he added.
"There young boys are pretty keen to progress quickly but what they have to do is learn their craft, learn how to be a professional player and get the best out of themselves.
"It's great to see a number of those guys kick on and be lucky enough to play for the Wallabies so it's a real shining light for the guys here if you progress your Rugby and you play well, this is a platform for further opportunity but you have to work hard for it."
