New Brumbies coach Dan McKellar shows his hand in naming a full strength side to face the Chiefs

ON the eve of the Super Rugby season, new Brumbies coach Dan McKellar has shown his hand by naming a full strength line up for Wednesday’s trial match against the Chiefs on the Sunshine Coast.

Ten Wallabies have been named in the squad, with nine in the starting side including playmaker and co-captain Christian Lealiifano.

Only star Wallaby David Pocock is missing from the side, with the world class openside flanker recovering from knee surgery which will see him miss the opening rounds of the Super Rugby competition.

PERSPECTIVE: Pocock on gap year, eyes early return
