Former Australian sevens player Rachel Crothers is hoping the University of Canberra side can catapult her back into the national side in time for the Tokyo Olympic Games.
Crothers has been named in a 30-player squad for the national university series, joining former Wallaroo Georgia O'Neill in a squad littered with talent.
Crothers still has golden ambitions, and hopes the upcoming university sevens series will give her a chance to improve her game and impress selectors.
"The Aussie jersey is definitely a goal," Crothers said. "My main focus will be playing good footy and if that's meant to happen it will.
"Playing at that standard again would be a dream."
Sevens coach Liam McGrath has included a burst of youth to add spark to his experienced roster. High school students Brooke Gilroy and Lily Murdoch have both been picked in the initial training squad.
Wallaroos rookie Michaela Leonard has also been included a week after making her 15-a-side international debut.
"I've been really impressed with the young girls coming through," Crothers said.
"Their skill, their ability - even at training its been really exciting to play with them."
McGrath says the team has made massive improvements in the past three years.
"In terms of skill development, physicality, even the way the girls process and perceive the game now it's like watching a different sport," McGrath said.
"I think we'll be really competitive. We're going to be pushing for top four finishes every tournament."
