Australia A coach Jason Gilmore has named a 34-player squad for the upcoming tour of Japan in October. Congratulations to Tom Robertson and Brad Wilkin who are both included in the side. 

Australia A made its long-anticipated return during July’s Pacific Nations Cup, finishing second behind Samoa. The three-match series is designed to give extra game time to players as they push their case for the end-of-season tour.  It will be the first time a Japan XV will take on the development side since 2008, set to kick off on Saturday, October 1 at Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium in Tokyo. The action will then head to Best Denki Stadium in Fukuoka on October 8 before concluding in Osaka on October 14.
