Rugby: Wallabies Squad for the 1st Bledisloe Test named

Ewen McKenzie has named a squad of 30 for the first test match against New Zealand on 17 August as follows:

James Horwill (capt), Albert Anae, Ben Alexander, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Quade Cooper, Nick Cummins, Kane Douglas, Saia Faingaa, Scott Fardy, Israel Folau, Bernard Foley, Will Genia, Liam Gill, Michael Hooper, Sekope Kepu, Tevita Kuridrani, Christian Lealiifano, Ben McCalman, Hugh McMeniman, Jesse Mogg, Stephen Moore, Ben Mowen, James O’Connor, Jake Schatz, Rob Simmons, Scott Sio, James Slipper, Joe Tomane, Matt Toomua, Nic White

It is a heartbreaking statistic for Australia fans that not one of these players has played in a victorious Bledisloe Cup campaign.

McKenzie has been quoted as saying: “We don’t need to make a decision publicly about the play-making role until one hour before the game” so Australian fans will be nonethewiser as to the number 10 to be chosen until close to game time it would seem.
