Dave Rennie has included 11 uncapped players in the Wallabies squad while there was also a recall for Sitaleki Timani eight years after his last Test appearance.
Rennie announced a 38-man squad for Australia’s upcoming three-Test series at home against France.
The selection of Timani – who last played for Australia in 2013 – is the one surprise call-up by Rennie.
With an average age of 25, as well as having 11 uncapped players, the squad includes a further 14 who have played fewer than 10 Tests.
The uncapped players are Pone Fa’amausili, Lalakai Foketi, Ikitau, Kaitu’u, Kellaway, Rob Leota, Lonergan, Andy Muirhead, Perese, Swain and Michael Wells.
The Brumbies have the most representatives with 12, with nine each from the Reds and Rebels, respectively, and six Waratahs despite their winless year.
Michael Hooper has returned from Japan to captain the side.
The first Test is scheduled for 7 July in Sydney, followed by matches in Melbourne and Brisbane – with the entire series to be completed in just 11 days.
‘We’ve picked this squad on form and on potential, and I know the whole group will be really excited to get stuck in and push their case for a Wallaby jersey against France,’ Rennie said.
‘Obviously the squad is a bit bigger than what we would normally have but we had to consider how we will handle the rigours of the series.’
