Do you want to play Super W rugby for the Brumbies?
Well now you have the chance to shine as the club holds open trials on Sunday 3 November from 11am to 4pm at Brumbies HQ at the University of Canberra.
This open trial follows on from the successful satellite sessions that were run in October in Ulladulla and Wagga, events that enable the girls in the Brumbies outer regions to show their quality in front of the Super W coaching team.
Over fifty prospective talents attended those sessions and will be aiming to follow in the footsteps of Brumbies Super W luminaries such as Michaela Leonard, who was selected in the 2019 Wallaroos squad and played in all four test matches, and Shellie Milward, who was also selected in the Wallaroos Squad for the New Zealand test matches.
“It’s exciting to have an Open Trial process to help to identify talent for our forthcoming 2020 Super W campaign,” Brumbies Super W Head Coach Adam Butt commented.
“We had a terrific turnout at our regional sessions and am looking forward to seeing the quality that attends this open day.
“It’s a terrific opportunity for us to see talented players who, for whatever reason, may have bene overlooked in our initial talent identification process.
“We have had expressions of interest in athletes from Queensland, South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and the Northern Territory, plus many from within the ACT and surrounding region, so are expecting a high-quality session.”
Following the Open Trial, and the section of the provisional 2020 Brumbies Super W squad, the group will train three days a week in a six-week training block leading into Christmas with the final squad being selected in early December.
Training will intensify thereafter with a two-day camp at the famed AIS in early January, allowing the group to start to gel under the tutelage of Head Coach Butt and his assistants, before a six-week lead-in to the first Super W match of the new campaign.
