Double boost for Wallabies

David Pocock and Sean McMahon have returned from injury to bolster the Wallabies squad for the final Bledisloe Cup Test against the All Blacks next weekend.

Pocock hasn't played since breaking his hand against Argentina a month ago, while McMahon was injured a week later in Pretoria when he went down with an ankle injury, but both have now returned to full fitness.

In announcing the 31-man squad on Friday, Wallabies coach Michael Cheika also recalled big lock Will Skelton, who has been in strong form for the Western Sydney Rams in the National Rugby Championship.
