Sydney Rays name Brumbies recruit in team to play Canberra Vikings

Brumbies recruit Chris Alcock will start at openside flanker for the Sydney Rays against the Canberra Vikings on Saturday afternoon and will go head to head against a handful of his new teammates. The 28-year-old played a timely cameo for the Rays last weekend against Brisbane City at Ballymore, coming off the bench and grabbing a try and a number of crucial turnovers. Alcock was at the Waratahs from 2010 until 2012 and has spent the past three seasons at the Western Force. In that time he has notched up 55 Super Rugby games (25 at the Tahs and 30 at the Force) and is considered one of the most dogmatic on-ballers in the country. He played NRC for the Greater Sydney Rams in 2014 and saddled up for the Perth Spirit in 2015. When he knew he was heading east from Perth Alcock contacted Rays head coach Simon Cron to see if he could train and keep his fitness up with the Rays group. But a number of injuries in the backrow ranks has seen him get and grab his chance. Alain Miriallakis
