Amongst the Great Britain & Ireland World Cup squads are a host of Aussies with British or Irish ancestry who will be looking forward to representing their adopted homeland against the world’s best come 6 December.
The Australians who will be representing Great Britain & Ireland at the Tag Rugby World Cup include: Brad Aird, Emma Becker, Jodie Bijorac, Phillip Browne, Sarah O’Neill, Tim Ross and Rachael Speare.
The head coach Jay ‘Ringo’ Wilkinson and assistant, Arron Lombardo are both Australians and will be looking to guide their team to some World Cup success.
Australia are the current world champions followed by New Zealand, but with playing numbers soaring in the UK this year you can’t write off Great Britain & Ireland.
