Rugby Australia bring #dreamBigTime tour to Moree to uncover future Indigenous rugby sevens stars

Rugby Australia are on the hunt for some young Indigenous talent and took a team to Moree as part of the #dreamBigTime tour to uncover potential future representative rugby sevens players.

Former and current Australian rugby sevens representatives, including Matt Sonter, John Porch, Demi Hayes, as well as former Australian Men's Sevens assistant coach Jarred Hodges were all on hand to help with the trials.


Players go through speed testing, practising their passing skills as well as testing their mental capacity through aerobic drills.

From these trials, the top 120 players - 60 males and 60 females - will participate in a four-day camp in Moree where they will be put to the test in front of national coaches, with plans for both male and female Australian sevens players to also attend.

Two squads of 20 will then be selected to play in five domestic and two international tournaments.

The hope is for at least two of the players to progress through to obtaining an Australian rugby sevens contract.
