July 23, 2014 4:08 am
Fijian Henry Speight has today been named in the Australia squad to play in the Rugby Championship next month.
The Fijian-born 26-year-old will not be eligible to help break Australia’s 12-year Bledisloe Cup drought and will have to wait until the Wallabies’ Test against Argentina on the Gold Coast in September before he can pull on a gold jersey.
He will have reached the IRB’s 36-month threshold on September 11, in time for the back end of the Rugby Championship and the Wallabies’ third Test against the All Blacks in October.
Fellow Fijian and Brumbies team mate, Tevita Kuridrani has also been named.
