The Australian Rugby Union is said to be considering the re-introduction of the traditional “probables vs possibles” matches at the end of the Tri Nations.

With no regular nationwide club competition currently in operation the games would be held in October after the Tri Nations ends in September.

The matches could be contested between the Wallabies and an Australian Barbarians side made up of fringe Test players from club rugby ranks this year.

The concept would allow Australian Test selectors to cast their nets wider and pick players on form for the Wallabies’ end of year tour to the Northern Hemisphere.

RugbyHeaven says that the squads could include Wallabies on the comeback from injury, players ranked from 23rd to 45th by coach Robbie Deans, or several as yet unknown talents the selectors want to see first-hand after hearing about them on the grapevine of club rugby.
