IN THE SPOTLIGHT: While the Wallabies are hard at work preparing for this year's Rugby Championship, a familiar old foe joined them in camp this week.

All Blacks legend Brad Thorn was spotted in the Wallabies' training camp.

According to rugby.com.au, Thorn is in the camp from an educational perspective, looking to gain some experience to take back to Queensland.

Thorn linked up with the Reds in 2015 as Elite Development Squad forwards coach. He is in charge of nurturing some of the side's young talent coming through the ranks.

Another legend of the game spotted in the Wallabies' camp is former captain and scrumhalf George Gregan.

Gregan has been assisting in the mental side of things by helping players with their attitude and leadership skills.

"He's going to do a bit of work, just our off-field stuff with some of our lads," Wallabies coach Michael Cheika told rugby.com.au.

"There's no one better - he's the number one around his attitude, leadership, work ethic, he's got all those things.

"I've used him myself on some different counsel and wanting to work off the field with a few different players just around growing the leadership department in the team."
