BARLA UNISON 2009 SOUTH PACIFIC TOUR


BARLA International Manager Mick Turner as announced the BARLA Great Britain squad for the BARLA Unison 2009 South Pacific Tour this June. He has named a twenty eight man touring squad as well as a six man stand bye squad.



On the squad being announced BARLA Great Britain Head Coach John Fieldhouse said,



We’re all looking forward to this fantastic opportunity to represent our country where we will be visiting some great destinations, all with a very good reputation as rugby playing nations.



“To be quite honest I don’t know the level of teams that we will meet in the South Pacific, whether they’ll be playing their world cup players or not, but I expect that we will be meeting some tough sides and we’ll be well prepared for that.



“I’m very happy with the content of the squad; it contains some very elusive backs with pace and a large set of strong forwards who I will be looking to for a physical dominance.



“I’ll be looking for our lads to front up both mentally and physically and obviously we’ll be doing lots of physical and mental preparation in the months leading up to the tour.



“I’ll be looking to return from this tour as we did from South Africa in 2006, as an unbeaten side.”



Assistant International Manager John Jefferson said,



“With the nations we will be meeting, I see this as a very challenging tour.



“Looking at our squad, we have some very experienced players and a lot of them have progressed through the under 21’s and 23’s which is extremely pleasing.



“On the management and coaching side of things, there are bags of experience. Both the coaches, John Fieldhouse and Gary Charlton possess loads of professional experience and International Manager Mick Turner has plenty of touring experience which all add up to a successful outcome of this venture.”
