Noah Lolesio’s beaming smile was a welcome sight on Monday morning as the loaned-out Brumbies playmaker produced some exceptional individual magic during Toulon’s win over Racing 92. After a 50-22 victory, Lolesio swiftly took a quick lineout and his pass led to a well-executed try. Lolesio, who wasn’t utilized by Eddie Jones throughout 2023, took a short-term deal with the well-known French club to gain more match practice. He will return to Canberra later this year and will have to compete with Jack Debreczeni, who demonstrated maturity in his return to Australian rugby last year.

Super Rugby form will be crucial as the season is less than 100 days away. Here are 10 players who could make a comeback after falling down the pecking order. Ned Hanigan was a Wallaby at 22 and has since evolved into a much-improved player after injuries in the past 18 months. Darcy Swain, a second-rower with discipline issues, possesses physicality and skill. Harry Wilson, despite initial promise, has yet to reach his full potential. Lukhan Salakaia-Loto, fresh off playing alongside Courtney Lawes, will need to improve consistency and work-rate. Lachie Swinton and Reesjan Pasitoa also have potential for a strong comeback. Charlie Gamble and Billy Pollard have the tools to succeed, and Jock Campbell is a talented player unlikely to be a Jones favorite.
