Sydney Uni Football Club’s (SUFC) Nathan Charles and David McDuling have been selected in the Australian U20 side along with some of the Super 14’s big names, including Rob Horne, Kurtley Beale and the exciting Western Force back, James O’Connor.
Charles and McDuling will have a home ground advantage in the Australian U20s trial match against Uruguay, which is to be held on Sydney University’s No 1 Oval at 6pm on Friday 29 May.
Fans of SUFC and of dynamic rugby,in general, are invited to see all of the future Wallabies, in Sydney, before they depart for Japan. Not much is known about the Uruguayan side; except for their aggression and speed as a unit.
Admission into the grounds is a gold coin donation and food and drinks will be available.
This is Charles’ second selection in the U20s after touring with the team in Wales in 2008.
The team is representing Australia in the IRB U20 Championships in four cities across Japan between June 5 and June 21.
