Wallabies squad named to face Scotland

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has called back Will Genia and has given David Pocock the green light, for the Scotland clash tomorrow night.

Genia was previously witheld by his French club Stade Francais for last week’s leg of the Spring Tour, with accomplished halfback Nick Phipps filling his spot.

It’s the only change to the starting line-up from the squad which dominated Wales 32-8, with Phipps relegated to the bench and Queensland’s Nick Frisby dropped out of the match-day line-up altogether.


In a shake up to the bench, rookie prop Tom Robertson will slot in for experienced Reds captain James Slipper and giant Will Skelton for Scott Fardy.

Dean Mumm will replace outside back Sefa Naivalu.

Backrower David Pocock, who has been on light training since suffering a concussion on Saturday, has been retained as blindside flanker.

Australian team to face Scotland (15-1):

Israel Folau, Dane Haylett-Petty, Tevita Kuridrani, Reece Hodge, Henry Speight, Bernard Foley, Will Genia, Lopeti Timani, Michael Hooper, David Pocock, Adam Coleman, Rory Arnold, Sekope Kepu, Stephen Moore (capt), Scott Sio. Reserves: Tolu Latu, Tom Robertson, Allan Alaalatoa, Rob Simmons, Will Skelton, Dean Mumm, Nick Phipps, Quade Cooper.
