 Key points/Observations:

  • Haylett-Petty is out for the year after deciding surgery was the best option for his ongoing biceps injury. He has been replaced on the wing by Hodge and Kerevi is on the bench.
  • Adam Coleman returns from injury forcing Simmons to the bench and Rodda to outside the 23.
  • Polota-Nau has replaced Moore (paternal duties) in the starting team and Uelese is expected to make his debut from the pine.
  • Jack Dempsey has been named in the wallabies team as a back-row replacement instead of Timani.
  • Kepu has been named to start with Alaalatoa rotated to the bench.
