The team for Saturday’s round 1 fixture against defending champions Brisbane City has been released, with coach Darren Coleman looking to play an expansive and attacking style of football in what promises to be a blockbuster fixture.

Sam Needs makes his debut with the Eagles in the front row, after an outstanding shute shield season with Eastwood. He is partnered by the very experienced Tolu Latu, who plays hooker. Vice Captain Ned Hanigan will look to bring momentum from a strong club campaign, and will start in the second row alongside Tim Buchanan. The Eagles backline boasts a young, yet explosive pool of talent, headlined by fullback Andrew Kellaway and outside centre and acting captain David Horwitz. They are not the only two backs with Super rugby exposure this season, left winger Reece Robinson and inside centre Kyle Godwin both boasting a wealth of experience in the highly respected . Alex Newsome and Andrew Deegan make their Eagles debuts, and will provide the team with go forward and creativity, key to success in what is an attack oriented competition.
