Wallabies add seven Brumbies

Michael Cheika has added the finishing touches to his extended Wallabies training squad, naming seven Brumbies to join the group in Newcastle.

There are no surprises among the seven additions, with Allan Alaalatoa, Scott Sio, Rory Arnold, Sam Carter, Joe Powell, Henry Speight and Tevita Kuridrani all named.

Kyle Godwin, who was part of the June squad, joins the list of players not considered due to injury.

The squad will stay in Newcastle for the remainder of the week before returning to their respective states, where they will train next week before the final squad for the first Bledisloe is named.

That group will meet in Cessnock on August 6, before heading to Penrith for the final week of preparation leading into the August 19 opener.
