Wallabies Team vs USA

Wallabies Team vs USA

The Wallabies have announced the team to play the USA Eagles at Soldier Field in Chicago Sunday morning AEDT.

It’s looking like a chance for the dirt trackers to have a run out, save for the potential 9-10-12 combo of Phipps, Foley and Giteau. Regular Wallabies Captain Stephen Moore isn’t even in the squad for the match, instead James Slipper takes on the skipper role and Matt Giteau says “I’m the Vice Captain”.

There are two uncapped players in Toby Smith and Taqele Naiyaravoro on the bench – a good way for Cheiks to lock the Fijian flying shithouse into the Green and Gold.
