WATCH: Shock selection brings raw emotions to new Wallabies prop

Australia prop Oliver Hoskins broke down in emotion after being named in the Wallabies squad to face England at Twickenham on Saturday.

The 28-year-old currently plays for London Irish in the Gallagher Premiership and was brought into Dave Rennie’s squad for their tour of the northern hemisphere along with several other Europe-based players.

The Australian media team filmed Hoskins as the team was announced to play England and the second his name was called out the emotions hit.

“It’s a really special time for me and my family and something I’ve dreamt of since I was a little kid,” said Hoskins. “I remember when I was five years old watching my brothers play club rugby and I turned to my dad and said I want to play for the Wallabies one day.”

Hoskins joined London Irish in 2016 were he played alongside veteran front-rower and now Wallabies scrum coach Petrus du Plessis.

Hoskins added: “Moving over here to play I thought that dream was over but now that the rules have changed I’ve been given this opportunity.

“I was just at a friend’s house on Sunday and Petrus gave me a call… he said they may need me in camp the next day but just told tight.”

After concussions were confirmed for Wallabies props Allan Alaalatoa and Taniela Tupou Hoskins said he was dragged out of London Irish training while he was at the gym and went straight over to Australia’s camp ahead of this weekend’s Test match at Twickenham.

Kick off for Saturday’s Test match is 17:30 GMT and the Wallabies will be wanting a big response following last week’s defeat to Scotland.
