Fit and healthy, Warringah’s Archie Saunders is primed to take on world’s best

He’s one of the most unique young players in Australian rugby and after finally getting his body right, he might be about to make a name for himself on the international stage.

Warringah’s Archie Saunders is in South Africa with the Junior Wallabies and after missing last years tournament, is more eager than most to get on the field.

“Just before the first camp last year I injured my ankle in a trial game with the Waratahs and that ruled me out for a while, then I had a few hamstring issues and only ended up playing a handful of games towards the backend of last season unfortunately,” he told Rugby News before departing for the World Cup.

“Then I missed the Rugby Championship with another niggly injury earlier this year as well so this will be my first crack in an Australian team and I’m really pumped to put on the jersey.”

Saunders seemed confident his injury woes were behind him though on the back of a solid few months of training that led to his Shute Shield grade debut with Warringah.
