Wallabies Named for SA and Argentina Tour

  • Wallabies Named for SA and Argentina Tour

The Wallabies side set to take on South Africa looks very impressive, with Matt Hodgson, Ben McCalman and Pek Cowan the three Force players in the squad.

There have been for additions to the squad, with Adam Ashley-Cooper returning after recovering from his neck injury. Aswell as him we will see Will Genina, Benn Robinson and Saia Fainga'a. 

It will be very interesting to see what approach Ewen McKenzie decides to take at the scrumhalf position, as the Phipps/Foley Waratah offensive combination has been working pretty well. At this point in time, it looks like Nic White will not dress in the Green and Gold for the first test against South Africa in Newlands.
