Reece Hodge has been selected to start at outside centre for the Wallabies against the All Blacks in Sydney on Saturday.
Coach Michael Cheika has been forced to tweak his starting lineup due to injuries, with Hodge replacing Samu Kerevi in the midfield. The only other change to the backline sees a fit-again Will Genia start ahead of Nick Phipps at scrumhalf.
In a new-look front row, hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau and loosehead prop Tom Robertson have been elevated to the run-on XV at the expense of Brandon Paenga-Amosa and Scott Sio, who is injured.
Utility back Matt Toomua has been named on the bench and will play in his first Test since 2016 if he is utilised. Rebels fullback Jack Maddocks is the only uncapped player in the match-day squad.
Wallabies – 15 Israel Folau, 14 Dane Haylett-Petty, 13 Reece Hodge, 12 Kurtley Beale, 11 Marika Koroibete, 10 Bernard Foley, 9 Will Genia, 8 David Pocock, 7 Michael Hooper (c), 6 Lukhan Tui, 5 Adam Coleman, 4 Izack Rodda, 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Tatafu Polota-Nau, 1 Tom Robertson.
Subs: 16 Tolu Latu, 17 Allan Alaalatoa, 18 Taniela Tupou, 19 Rob Simmons, 20 Pete Samu, 21 Nick Phipps, 22 Matt Toomua, 23 Jack Maddocks.
