Harry Wilson says he is ready should he be given the call-up for next month's Bledisloe Cup opener.
There is speculation the former Gunnedah junior will be thrown straight into the Wallabies side for the October 11 showdown.
"I feel as if I got given the opportunity I'm definitely ready," the 20-year old said from the Wallabies camp in the Hunter Valley.
"I know there's a lot of other good loose forwards and I know over the next three weeks I'll definitely have to prove myself and show I'm up for it, but I definitely believe I could definitely do the job."
The squad assembled on Monday at what will be their base until later in the week when they will head over to New Zealand to begin their quarantine period.
The boom Reds No.8 is one of 16 uncapped players in the squad and said he is "loving it so far" .
"I was very excited coming in. I was pretty nervous meeting all the other Aussie players but I've really enjoyed getting to know them all," he said.
He reflected on watching Bledisloe tests over the years and said pulling on the gold against New Zealand is "something I have definitely wanted to do for a long time".
"There's such a long history there, it would be a privilege to be part of it," he said.
Wilson's own Wallabies history traces back to his junior days.
Wallaby Hall of Fame inductee Tim Gavin was his first coach, coaching his Red Devils juniors side for five years.
"Pretty surreal" given where he is now, Wilson said while he knew Gavin was a Wallaby he was too young to fully comprehend what that really meant and how good a player he actually was.
"Since then I've learnt a lot about him and I've stayed in touch with him since, especially the last two years," he said.
"It's pretty lucky when you think growing up in a country town, that you're getting coached by a great Wallaby."
