Quite a few Fijian's coming through the Island Breeze Rugby Plus program which brought Naiavalu to Australia: Ukalele, Rate, Moto, Baleilovu, Nairavu and Nabolakasi.

Then there's also Serupepli Uru, the giant U20s lock.

If by giant you mean tall but very skinny,

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

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.

Can anyone tell me what position these guys play?

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
