Will Miller, Nick Palmer & Alex Newsome headline Waratahs 2018 recruitment list
Northern Suburbs pair Will Miller and Nick Palmer and Eastern Suburbs back Alex Newsome have all been named in the Waratahs 2018 playing squad.
Palmer returns to Sydney after a stint in New Zealand, while Miller and Newsome played with the Rebels and Force respectively in 2017.
Daryl Gibson has also added young props Cody Walker and Shambeckler Vui to the full time squad, while NSW U20s graduates and Sydney Uni forwards Harry Johnson-Holmes and Lachlan Swinton have both signed three year deals.
Centre Lalakai Foeti will also return to Moore Park, after spending time with Bay of Plenty in New Zealand.
NSW Waratahs Coach Daryl Gibson said these young players are hungry to get their opportunity at professional rugby.
“We are looking forward to further developing this group of young men. They have impressed the coaching team with their attitudes and willingness to improve and are working hard to succeed. The expectation is that they arrive ready to perform and make the most of their opportunity to compete with their team mates for starting spots,” Gibson said.
