The Junior Wallabies side that will face New Zealand U20s in round three of the Oceania Rugby U20s Championship tomorrow night has been named with captain Ryan Lonergan returning to the starting team after missing the first two clashes.

In other changes Mack Hansen comes back into starting XV at fullback and Harry Hockings moves from the bench to the starting XV to combine with Trevor Hosea at lock. Sama Malolo comes into the squad having completed duties with the Melbourne Rebels and will be the reserve hooker.

Aussie 7s Squad member Matt McTaggert who scored four tries against Tonga moves to the wing.

Junior Wallabies Head Coach Jason Gilmore said: “We’ve prepared really well yesterday and today. The boys and staff are excited and we’re looking forward to it.

“Ryan Lonergan is really keen, it was disappointing he couldn’t play in the first two games because of a niggle.

“We always planned to play him in this game and give him the opportunity to lead his country. He’s a quality footballer.

“We have a really strong bench through the Forwards and the Backs and we know they will bring a lot of energy and bring some impact to what they do.”

The match will kick off at Bond University Rugby club at 7pm AEST on the Gold Coast and will be streamed LIVE through RUGBY.com.au.
