In all realistic honesty, Australia has very slim hopes of winning the Rugby championship but this weekend is all about stamping marks as they intend to put the loss to Argentina in the past.
Wallabies coach; Michael Cheika has decided to give young prop, Taniela Tupou a shot from the get go. The 22-year-old will be among the changes made by Cheika against the Springboks at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.
Cheika admitted that the loss to the Springboks was a painful one and the game was marred with an altercation between flanker Lukhan Tui and a fan that brought further gloom to the day.
Tupou will be locking horns with Tendai “Beast” Mtawarira yet again , the two had an action packed clash in Brisbane when the Wallabies got victory.
WALLABIES – Dane Haylett-Petty, Israel Folau, Reece Hodge, Matt Toomua, Marika Koroibete, Kurtley Beale, Will Genia, David Pocock, Michael Hooper (c), Ned Hanigan, Izack Rodda, Adam Coleman, Taniela Tupou, Tatafu Polota-Nau, Scott Sio.
