G&GR’s democratic Wallabies 22

With over 2,300 votes cast, we’ve now got good idea of who discerning Aussie rugby followers want to see in the green and gold this year. The squad is at the bottom, but here are a few of the more interesting turn-ups:

  • Sianara Japan, James O’Connor makes the 15, ahead of Drew Mitchell
  • Big Cliffy still has it over the lighter weight Richard Brown
  • David Pocock has taken Phil Waugh’s bench spot
  • Ben Alexander needs to work on his tight head scrummaging, as he’s on the bench covering both sides !
