2019 Australia U20s squad finalised

Australian U20s coach Jason Gilmore has named a 48-man squad to continue preparations for this year’s U20s World Cup.

Gilmore named a wider training squad last year but trimmed the squad ahead of a week long training camp that begins at the AIS in Canberra on Sunday.

“It’s exciting to get the group together again.  We’re getting closer to the Oceania U20 Championship and every opportunity we have together as a group is important,” Gilmore said.

“The staff including National High Performance Coach Advisor Stephen Larkham are looking forward to working with our playing group.

“Camp two will see a combination of units and team work across the week. The group is looking to build on camp one performances along with their performances in their respective clubs.

“We had our draw for the World Championship released the other day, and we’ll have some fierce opposition from sides that will be coming off their own Six Nations campaigns, so the hard work continues for our squad,” Gilmore said.

Josh Nasser, the son of 1991 Rugby World Cup winner Brendan Nasser is in the squad alongside Australian Men’s Sevens speedster Triston Reilly.
