The Junior Wallabies will be led by former Queensland Reds Assistant Coach, Jason Gilmore who takes over the reins from Simon Cron heading into Australia’s first National camp this week.
Gilmore is a rising coach in Australia’s development pathway and has elite success with the Queensland Reds U20s, where he coached the side to the Super U20s Premiership in 2016 having worked alongside incoming Reds Coach, Brad Thorn.
Gilmore has also previously been an Assistant Coach for the Junior Wallabies and has coached Souths to the Queensland Premier Rugby Final in Brisbane as well as the Queensland U20s side in 2015.
The National squad will assemble at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra on Wednesday December 6 until Sunday December 10 as they commence their 2018 campaign.
The re-branded Junior Wallabies (formerly the Australia U20s) outfit will have four National Camps heading into the Oceania Rugby U20s Championship on the Gold Coast in April next year, preparing for the 2018 World Rugby U20s Championship.
Gilmore will balance his Junior Wallabies role with his role as Queensland Reds Elite Youth Development Head Coach.
Rugby Australia General Manager, High Performance Ben Whitaker said: “We’re really excited to have Jason take over the reins of the Junior Wallabies as Head Coach.
“He has a really smart Rugby brain and a real passion for developing young players and this role will also enhance his abilities as an Australian Coach coming through the pathway.
“Jason has been a key part of Rugby Australia’s and the Queensland Reds Coaching programs and he comes into this role really energized for what is a big year for the Junior Wallabies program.
“There are plenty of talented young players in this initial national squad and we’re looking forward to seeing them come together over the next few months.”
Junior Wallabies Head Coach, Jason Gilmore said: “I’m really honoured to be taking over the role of the Junior Wallabies Head Coach and I am looking forward to getting into training with the lads and my coaching staff this week.
“The U20s is an integral part of the Pathway to Gold and in building talented players for Super Rugby, Aussie Sevens and for the Wallabies.
“We will work extremely hard to build a squad that has high performance success at the Oceania Rugby U20s and World Rugby U20s Championships and our work starts now to build a group of men capable of delivering.”
The Junior Wallabies have New Zealand, Wales and Japan in Pool A at the World Rugby U20s Championship.
