Henry Speight

When will Henry Speight be eligible to wear the gold and green of Australia?

At the end of this month, I hear.

And boy oh boy, aren't we all looking forward to see the second half of the 'Bula Brothers' don that jersey!

F.Y.I. Bula Brothers = Speight & Brumbies team-mate Tevita Kuridrani, who are both of Fijian origins. (Sounds like an X-Men movie)

The former Queen Victoria School student, who has scored a boatload of tries in the past two years of Super Rugby, is undoubtedly the best winger in Australia at the moment.

And the best thing about him is the consistency.

The Wallabies have used Israel Folau, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Joe Tomane, Nick Cummins and James O'Connor on the flanks in 2013.

With Australia set to clash with England, Italy, Ireland, Scotland and Wales during the November Tests, Speight is expected to be one of coach Ewen McKenzie's first choices for this touring party.

I. Can't. Wait.
