Mitchell and Giteau selected for Oz
02 Jul 2015 10:10
Australia coach Michael Cheika has included France-based backs Matt Giteau and Drew Mitchell in his 40-man training squad for the Rugby Championship against New Zealand, South Africa and Argentina.
-
The Toulon team mates became eligible to play for the Wallabies after a rule change earlier this year which allowed overseas-based players with 60 international caps to be selected.
-
The 32-year-old Giteau, capped 92 times for the Wallabies, was once first-choice flyhalf under former coach Robbie Deans, but he was omitted from the 2011 World Cup squad amid reports of a fall-out with the New Zealander.
-
He was followed to French giants Toulon by 31-year-old winger Mitchell, who played his last test for the Wallabies against Wales in 2012.
-
The pair heralded their arrival from Europe on Wednesday by posting a photo of themselves drinking champagne on a plane.
