Newton gears up for rugby tour

BEN Newton's first game for Australia isn't far away after being selected in the first tier Australian wheelchair rugby team on Monday.

Named as one of the top seven players in Australia, the 22 year-old is almost assured of playing with the world championship silver medallists and the former Orara High student can't wait to wear the green and gold.

"They’re restructuring the Australian program so that it’s made up of seven tier one players who go to all of the training camps and the tournaments," Newton said.

Brad Greenshields speaks Ben about his upcoming tour and training schedule in tomorrow's Coffs Coast Advocate.
