    THe Rising will be using my local Gym for S&C work. Assume this is just the Dewar Shield lads, not the Rebels players.

    It's the same Gym the Rebel U20's used. Good location as it's close to Quins, where I assume they will do most of their on-field training. Tons of platforms, racks, free/open areas. Good no dickhead policy too.

    Interesting selections. No Jeffries, I wonder if he is permanently crocked. No Jordy Reid either. Good to see Rob Leota back

    Possibly our least Rebels experienced squad, which is understandable and not such a bad thing for development.

    No Jeffries, No Jordy, No Pat, no Cruze, no Tumualealiifano are the ones that are missing at a glance

    While Rory O'Connor is the most interesting inclusion.

    All local players are from Quins, and some of them aren't world beaters. I don't understand why this happened.

    Angelo Leaupepe - Outside Backs
    Angus Arundel - Tight Head Prop
    Emmanuel Maufou - I think this is the Rebels 20s Lock from Brothers in Birsbane. Could be wrong though
    Josh Fenner - Blindside Flanker (also from Brisbane)
    Mahe Vailanu - Hooker
    Maradona Farao - Halfback and a bit of Flyhalf
    Oliva Sialau - Center
    Pone Fa’amuasili - Prop
    Simei Kolio - Number 8 but probably elsewhere at NRC level
    Sione Taufa - Blindside Flanker
