Five members of the Brumbies Provincial Team secured places in the Capital Cup merit side despite two losses in Canberra on Saturday.
The provincial side, featuring plenty of Southern Inland talent, suffered a 24-10 loss to ACT Griffins in their first game before falling 36-10 to the Brumbies under 19s.
Coach Nick McCarthy was still happy with the outing.
"It was tough footy, but we expected that, and I think we did ourselves proud," McCarthy said. "The game against the Griffins I thought we did really well in."
McCarthy thought they really matched the physicality of the Griffins however the under 19s proved too slick.
"The speed they were able to play with and their structures after an extended amount of training proved too fast for us," McCarthy said.
Southern Inland forwards caught the eye with Tom Boyle, Rob Wiltshire and Eroni Naua making the merit side alongside winger Vaughn Scott and Braidwood's Riley Turner.
