Wallabies Tri-Nations Squad 2008 Announced

Wallabies Tri-Nations Squad 2008 Announced

Below is the Australia Tri-Nations squad for the 2008 Tri-Nations. A few comments on the changes from the last few weeks:

Timana Tahu – Has been impossible not to notice for Australia and brings a real different option to Barnes at 12, where I hope they aim him and his ball skills
Drew Mitchell – Can always beat at least one man and has full-back experience, which is now on short supply
Hugh McMenimen – The hype continues but I still haven’t seen what the fuss is about this year, even with the new bad boy hair do and tatts. Useful height though

Digby Ioane – I thought he looked great for Aussie A against Fiji, but Hynes has taken his chances and Turner has a boot and potential
Mark Chisholm – Officially the TFC (Thanks For Coming) award. Didn’t even get to warm the bench
Stephen Hoiles – A fancy ball player and try poacher isn’t what the Wallabies pack needs right now. Obviously didn’t impress on Saturday.
Cameron Shepherd – busted ankle

Vickerman – hooray! Who goes out of the locks and how long until Vicks gets injured again?
Tatafu Palota Nau – the future.
Dunning, Tuqiri and Palu all back after a rest from last week.
