Look Wallabies front row named to face All Blacks

19 August 2018

The New Zealand-born 22-year-old was poised to play the world champions for the first time and earn his fifth Test cap.

Michael Cheika's plans to unleash Taniela Tupou on the All Blacks were dashed after the man known as Tongan Thor reportedly injured his hamstring at the Wallabies' captain's run on Friday. "The set piece was also disappointing, the Kiwis did a good job stifling us there". "He rolled it. It was pretty swollen", said Wallabies coach Michael Cheika.

He has been replaced on the Wallabies bench by uncapped Melbourne Rebels tighthead prop Jermaine Ainsley.

Despite their troubles, they dominated much of the first half through stern defence and forged a 6-0 lead through penalty goals from Reece Hodge and Bernard Foley.

The kick-off for the first Bledisloe Cup test between the All Blacks and Wallabies has been brought forward.

"They had probably dominated the first half so to get that score [just before half-time] was crucial". Waisake Naholo 13. Jack Goodhue 12.

Meanwhile, Reece Hodge has been confirmed as Australia's No.13 and young gun Jack Maddocks is in line to make his debut off the bench after a meteoric rise through the ranks in recent years. "I think the resilience within the boys was awesome".

But two minutes before half-time, returning All Blacks captain Kieran Read found scrum-half Smith to reduce the deficit to just one point and an onslaught of five second-half tries ensued.

The Wallabies won their last meeting with the All Blacks 23-18 in Brisbane past year.
