Three 10s for Rubble Reds

The Rubble Reds have named three recognised flyhalves in their backline ahead of their Hate your State encounter with the Waratahs

The latest convert from League, Berrick Barnes, starts in jersey 10, with the two flyhalves from last year’s campaign – Elton Flatley and Julian Huxley – both starting in midfield.

Chris Latham and Drew Mitchell are potent attackers, but after that the cupboard’s pretty darn bare. The pack is led by workhorse John Roe, and otherwise is low on quality.

Not quite the Farce of their Western colleagues, but scarily close.
