Was Jennings in competition or out of competition last year? From memory they pulled him from the team the Saturday morning of the game – so probably not relevant.

Why Nic White should be the next Wallabies captain

I personally would love to attend a Reds vs Waratahs at Ballymore (given an unlikely easing in both social gathering protocols and board closures).
