Australia coach Eddie Jones has named two new caps and three full-backs in the Wallabies side to face Scotland in Sunday's first Hopetoun Cup Test.
Clyde Rathbone, the former South Africa Under-21 captain, will make his Wallabies debut in the centres alongside Matt Giteau.
And Radike Samo, who rejected the chance to play for Fiji to follow his dream of becoming a Wallaby, will start at blindside flanker, providing
Australia with a third genuine lineout jumper to challenge Scotland's superior set-piece.
But as well as the new Wallabies, Jones unveiled a radical new attacking approach which will see Joe Roff, Lote Tuqiri and Wendell Sailor interchange
at full-back, providing a fluid back-three aimed at placing increased pressure on Scotland's defensive kicking.
