BRISBANE, 02 MAY 2019 (RED RUGBY) – Junior Wallabies Head Coach Jason Gilmore has named his match day squad for the team’s clash against Fiji in Round 2 of the 2019 Oceania U20s tournament on the Gold Coast.
Seven Queenslanders have been named in the starting side, with a further three on the bench.

Fellow Reds squad members Fraser McReight and Harry Wilson will come off the bench alongside prop Josh Nasser at Bond University.
“We’re looking forward to taking on the challenge of a strong Fijian side who we know will play that expansive style of game,” Gilmore said.
“They played a strong match against New Zealand and we’re expecting nothing less from them come Tuesday.
“There have been some changes in the squad following our match against Japan, so we’re excited to see how these new boys go tomorrow night.”
