Wallabies flyer Henry Speight is set to take his World Cup frustrations out in the Middle East next week when he’s handed his Australian international sevens debut.
Australia’s men will be genuine gold medal contenders when rugby sevens makes its Olympic debut in Rio after qualifying on Sunday in emphatic style.
One Henry will make his international sevens debut as Australia chases an Olympic spot this weekend but it won’t be Wallabies flyer Henry Speight.
Quade Cooper is already talking about becoming an Olympian but a treacherous path to Rio is about to become abundantly clear for any Wallabies with five-ringed aspirations.
Bench weapon David Pocock bluntly told it how it is: The Wallabies have a long way to go and must review their Rugby Championship escape-act like a loss.
Bernard Tomic will be surrounded by friendly local fire at a difficult Brisbane International where he hopes to continue his “emotional” career fightback.
