Junior Wallabies coach Jason Gilmore has confirmed his 57-man squad for the first camp of 2020 as the Junior Wallabies prepare for the Oceania Rugby U20s Championship.


Twenty-one Reds Academy players have been selected in the squad, including St.George Queensland Reds squad member Tom Kibble.

Several 2019 Junior Wallabies squad members have been selected by their Vodafone Super Rugby franchises to participate in the upcoming pre-season trials occurring around the country ahead of the commencement of the season on January 31.

The squad boasts a strong contingent of Australian Schools & U18s players with Josh Flook (QLD), John Connolly (NSW), Lachlan Albert (ACT) and Billy Pollard (ACT) all joining the Junior Wallabies program following their undefeated tour of New Zealand.

Junior Wallabies Head Coach Jason Gilmore said: “We’re excited to kick off our campaign in 2020 and get together as a group.

“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."

The Camp One Squad has assembled today at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.
