Wallabies back Dane Haylett-Petty joins new club on two and half year deal
Melbourne Rebels could boast an all-Wallabies back line for Super Rugby in 2018 after the addition of Wallabies star Dane Haylett-Petty.
Haylett-Petty was one of Wallabies coach Michael Cheika’s first-choice flyers before a bicep injury ruled him out of the rest of the season.
The 28-year-old’s younger brother Ross, who formed a solid second row with Force and Wallabies lock Adam Coleman during the Super Rugby season, also joins the Rebels after Western Force were axed by the Australian Rugby Union
“I’m really excited about getting stuck in and working hard to achieve something special over the next few years,” revealed the speedster
“The rugby program that Dave [Wessels] runs is all about hard work and pushing each other.
“I think we’re building a very competitive group at the Rebels, so I know that he’s going to get the best out of me here
