Pocock at No 6 for Wallabies

David Pocock will play blindside flank for Australia against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday.

Pocock came off the bench in their third Bledisloe Cup Test against the All Blacks a fortnight ago after recovering from a nasty hand injury, but returns to the back row following the suspension of Dean Mumm.

The only other change to the team sees Tevita Kuridrani start at outside centre ahead of Samu Kerevi, who drops out of the match 23 altogether.

On the bench, uncapped hooker Tolu Latu, prop James Slipper and flank Scott Fardy take over from James Hanson, Tom Robertson and Pocock respectively.

Wallabies – 15 Israel Folau, 14 Dane Haylett-Petty, 13 Tevita Kuridrani, 12 Reece Hodge, 11 Henry Speight, 10 Bernard Foley, 9 Nick Phipps, 8 Lopeti Timani, 7 Michael Hooper, 6 David Pocock, 5 Adam Coleman, 4 Rory Arnold, 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Stephen Moore (c), 1 Scott Sio.
Subs: 16 Tolu Latu, 17 James Slipper, 18 Allan Alaalatoa, 19 Rob Simmons, 20 Scott Fardy, 21 Nick Frisby, 22 Quade Cooper, 23 Sefu Naivalu.
