Australian Schools And U18s Team Against Scotland U19s Announced

 

Five changes were made by Coach Andrew Maloney to the Australian Schools and u/18 side, who will face Scotland U19s today.

The Australian side had a convincing win of 17-5 against the u/19 Ireland side on a wet, but firm artificial surface in Dublin–scoring three tries to one.

No. 8 Will Harris (Captain)  will combine with Jackson Pugh and Rory Scott in a new-look loosie combination. Carter Gordon has reclaimed the playmaking reins at 10 while Brendan Jimenez and Vincent Creagh return to the starting backline after sitting out their Dublin match. Tighthead Frances Sula-siaosi is one of two new inclusions on the bench, along with halfback Lachlan Albert.

Australia has won two of their three matches in their 2018 Northern Hemisphere tour so far, beating the Munster U19s and Ireland U19s but going to down to Ulster's U19s.in Ireland.
