Five capped Wallabies players will run out for the University of Canberra Vikings this Sunday in the side’s first home match of 2016 against the NSW Country Eagles.
Recent Wallaby debutant Allan Alaalatoa has been named at tighthead prop after his first two matches in national coulours, while Sam Carter, Josh Mann-Rea, Henry Speight and Rory Arnold will also bolster the side.
In total Head Coach Wayne Southwell has made four changes to the side that defeated Queensland Country 56-20 last Sunday on the Gold Coast.
Mann-Rea has been named to start at hooker. With two test-caps to his name, Mann-Rea actually made his NRC debut for NSW Country against the UC Vikings at Viking Park in 2014.
Joining Mann-Rea in the front row is Tongan A representative Sione Taula, and Alaalatoa who was named the UC Vikings’ best forward in 2015. Robbie Abel and Les Leulua’iali’i-Makin move to the bench after starting last week against Qld Country.
Sam Carter replaces Rory Arnold at lock. Arnold crossed for two tries last week and will feature as a reserve this week. Carter has previously played two NRC matches, both for NSW Country in 2015 before he was called into the Wallabies camp for the Rugby World Cup. Vice-captain Blake Enever will partner Carter in the starting side.
The back row is unchanged from last week with Tom Staniforth, skipper Jarrad Butler and Jordan Smiler retaining their spots. The halves are also unchanged following strong showings from both Joe Powell and Nick Jooste against Qld Country.
