  • Timu, Paenga-Amosa handed Test debuts

    first_imgThe Reds pair have been named at hooker and No. 8, respectively, with Pete Samu also set to make his debut from the bench.Timu’s inclusion pushes David Pocock to blindside flanker, with captain Michael Hooper to start at openside.Izack Rodda will pack down alongside Adam Coleman in the second row, with Sekope Kepu earning the nod over Taniela Tupou at tighthead prop.Will Genia and Bernard Foley will resume their halves partnership but there is otherwise a new look to the backline, with Samu Kerevi and Dane Haylett-Petty named at outside centre and left wing, respectively.Haylett-Petty’s start is his first in close to nine months, after a biceps injury ended his 2017 season midway through the Rugby Championship, while Kerevi will start at 13 for the first time since last year’s Test against Japan.Kerevi’s shift to outside centre squeezes Tevita Kuridrani out of the 23 altogether, with utility Reece Hodge pushed back to the bench as Haylett-Petty and Marika Koroibete earn first crack on the wings.Late squad inclusion, Tolu Latu, has done enough to earn a spot as cover for Paenga-Amosa on the bench, while Lukhan Tui, Rob Simmons and Samu have all been named as part of a 6-2 split on the pine.Wallabies team to face Ireland1.
