What is Greg McWilliams
“It’s a hugely exciting time for everyone involved in the program as we prepare to face Japan in these two summer tests and for us it’s all about hard work, development and opportunity. .
“With that in mind, it’s exciting to include a number of young players this weekend and we’re all looking forward to seeing them step into the green shirt after working so hard over the past two months.
