Wallabies Team vs France

  • Wallabies Team vs France

Nick Cummins, Ben McCalman and Pek Cowan have been selected for Saturday nights opening clash against the French.

The Honey Badger has been named in the starting line up whilst McCalman and Cowan will come off the bench.

It is dissapointing to see Force captain Matt Hodgson miss out on a spot at number 7, but trying to beat Michael Hooper for a position is no easy feet.

It will only be a matter of time before we see hooker Nathan Charles coming off the bench, so nothing to worry about in that department.
