The Greater Sydney Rams have announced their squad for the 2014 season of the National Rugby Championship (NRC).
It is a strong looking team, containing former Wallabies and current Waratahs Benn Robinson, Taqele Naiyaravaro and Ben Volavola, as well as Western Force player Chris Alcock.
This is backed up by a strong contingent of seasoned Shute Shield players, such as Hugh Perrett, Mark Swanepoel, Ben Batger and Rhys Brodie.
Their allocated Wallabies isn’t likely to benefit them too much over the course of the season, with the possible exception of Rob Horne being released if he isn’t selected Australia’s match-day 23.
The Rams kick off their NRC campaign against New South Wales Country on Saturday 23rd August.
