White's a wallaby

To become a Wallaby has always been his dream and that is exactly what Nic White has achieved. 

The 23-year-old rugby union talent is currently touring South Africa and Argentina where he is representing Australia as the half back in the Wallabies side. 

Born in Scone and the grandson of Brian and Kathleen  Adams, White is part of a brilliant sporting family and shares the thrill of his success with all his family. 

After playing for the ACT Brumbies for the past three years, White gained his first full cap in recent weeks when he played in the winning Wallabies team against Argentine Pumas in Perth.

White, No.9, played the full 80 minutes and was headlined to have impressed coaches and team officials alike.

His much anticipated call up came when Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie benched Will Genia.

White’s skill and success was highlighted in the Newcastle Herald last month when former Australian coach Bob Dwyer said White was probably the person most responsible for the victory. 

“His kicking game was terrific and when Folau scored it was classic (half back) behaviour that started it.

“He should definitely start in Cape Town.”

And this he did, when he started at No.9  in the game where the Wallabies went down 28-8 to the Springboks in Cape Town last weekend. 

The Wallabies will take on Argentina this Saturday.
