Dave Rennie has named his squad for the Wallabies' Test at the Principality Stadium

Australia Autumn Internationals Squad 2021

Dave Rennie has made four changes to his Australia side to face Wales this Saturday after losing to England.

The only change in the backline comes at wing as Tom Wright, who was sin-binned against England, is benched. Filipo Daugunu starts.

James Slipper will captain the side and switches back to loosehead with Tolu Latu and Taniela Tupou coming into the front row. Pete Samu comes in at flanker for the injured Michael Hooper.

And on the bench Lalakai Foketi could win his first cap if brought on.
