Mowen Unlikely To Play in 2015 World Cup 106 views 0 Comments 0 Images

Australia captain Ben Mowen could rule himself out of playing in the 2015 World Cup for his national side if he decides to join a French club at the end of this year, in which he has hinted is possible.

Only home-based players can feature for the Australian rugby union team therefore he would be ruled out of the next World Cup in England.

Mowen helped the ACT Brumbies surprise the bet365 odds to win the Super Rugby final against the Waitkato Chiefs. At the end of this 2014 season he will be leaving the club though, in which he has put the decision down to the travelling involved in the league.

There will be a host of clubs interested in Mowen’s services in Europe where his preferred destination is thought to be France.

The blindside flanker made his debut for the Wallabies against the British and Irish Lions on June 22, 2013. He played the full series in which they were beaten by the visitors 2-1.

Ewen McKenzie made Mowen captain of the national team in October, replacing James Horwill in the position.

Australia have three Tests scheduled against France in June where they will play in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.

They are then involved in the Rugby Championship which begins in August featuring New Zealand, South Africa, and the minnows in the bet365 betting, Argentina. In the first round they will host the Kiwis, before travelling to Auckland a month later in their second tie.

Two homes games will come against South and Argentina, respectively, and then they will visit both of those countries for their final fixtures in the competition in rounds five and six.

Australia are currently third in the world rankings behind New Zealand and South Africa.
