The 2019-20 Rugby Union program had a successful year of development on and off the field. The year’s highlight was attending the Australian Institute of Sport for a training camp, where athletes were coached by Brumbies coach Laurie Fisher, took part in skills and recovery sessions, and watched the first Super Rugby game of the year.
