Buildcorp Wallaroos star Samantha Treherne has been named in the Qantas Australian Women’s Sevens squad that will compete in round one of the HSBC Sevens World Series in Colorado next weekend.
Treherne impressed Australian Sevens selectors playing for the Buildcorp Wallaroos in the two Test Series against New Zealand, where she played fullback for Australia and backed it up with a strong performance for Griffith University in the Aon University Sevens Series.
Australia’s wingers in Emma Tonegato and Ellia Green have ensured that the Qantas Australian Women’s Sevens team will have plenty of pace out wide for the next two seasons with both players committing to Rugby Australia until 2020.
Green and Tonegato were two of Australia’s stars in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games with both players crossing for tries in the historic final against New Zealand to win Gold.
The Buildcorp Wallaroos will play New Zealand’s Black Ferns on Saturday August 10 in 2019, as a part of a Double Header when the Qantas Wallabies take on New Zealand at Optus Stadium in Perth.
It will be the first time that the Buildcorp Wallaroos have played a Test match in Western Australia.
The Australian Schools and U18s Squad to tour Ireland and Scotland has been named with 27 players to partake on the unique northern hemisphere tour.
Australia Schools will take on Scotland U19s and Ireland U19s across the three-week tour, with mid-week games against provincial sides including Munster Academy, to create a big challenge for the young Australians
