Wing Alex Cuthbert and flyhalf Dan Biggar have both been included in Wales starting XV for their match against the Wallabies in Cardiff on Saturday.
Cuthbert returns to the side after an ankle injury and takes the place of Hallam Amos while Biggar comes in for James Hook. Biggar gets the nod ahead of Rhys Priestland at 10, giving each a start apiece in the previous three matches.
Scott Williams has recovered from a toe injury to be named in the midfield alongside Cardiff Blues centre Owen Williams, who scored on his first outing at the Millennium Stadium last Friday.
Gethin Jenkins, who became a centurion on his last outing for Wales a fortnight ago, returns with Richard Hibbard to the front row. Rhodri Jones will start his third consecutive game at tighthead.
British & Irish Lions duo Ian Evans and Alun-Wyn Jones, who started all five of Wales' 2013 Six Nations games together, renew their partnership in the second row.
The back row will line up with Dan Lydiate at blindside, alongside captain Sam Warburton at openside and Toby Faletau at No 8.
Wales – 15 Leigh Halfpenny, 14 Alex Cuthbert, 13 Owen Williams, 12 Scott Williams, 11 George North, 10 Dan Biggar, 9 Mike Phillips, 8 Toby Faletau, 7 Sam Warburton (capt), 6 Dan Lydiate, 5 Ian Evans, 4 Alun-Wyn Jones, 3 Rhodri Jones, 2 Richard Hibbard, 1 Gethin Jenkins.
