The Wallabies have made two changes to their starting line-up to play Wales in Cardiff.

Adam Ashley-Cooper returns from his one-week ban for drinking, having missed out against Scotland, and slots into the outside centre position. Christian Leali’ifano, who played at 13 last week, moves to 12.

Nick Cummins is another who has returned and takes his place on the left wing in place of Chris Feauai-Sautia.

The bench has seen a radical change, with Tatafu Polota-Nau, Benn Robinson, Ben Alexander, Dave Dennis, Kane Douglas and Mike Harris joining Nic White and Bernard Foley, who were reserves last week.

Wallabies – 15 Israel Folau, 14 Joe Tomane, 13 Adam Ashley-Cooper, 12 Christian Leali’ifano, 11 Nick Cummins, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Will Genia, 8 Ben Mowen, 7 Michael Hooper, 6 Scott Fardy, 5 James Horwill, 4 Rob Simmons, 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Stephen Moore, 1 James Slipper.
Subs: 16 Tatafu Polota-Nau, 17 Benn Robinson, 18 Ben Alexander, 19 Kane Douglas, 20 Dave Dennis, 21 Nic White, 22 Mike Harris, 23 Bernard Foley.
