Fullback Israel Folau is one of four players to be recalled to the Wallabies’ 31-man squad for their Tests against the Springboks and Argentina.
Folau’s inclusion is the only change in terms of backline personnel. This comes after he was ruled out of Australia’s Test against the All Blacks in Auckland last week due to an ankle sprain.
Coach Michael Cheika has also recalled forwards Caleb Timu, Rory Arnold and Brandon Paenga-Amosa after they were dropped from the squad a fortnight ago.
Australia host the Springboks in Brisbane on 8 September and Argentina in Robina the following week.
Wallabies – Allan Alaalatoa, Rory Arnold, Adam Coleman, Folau Fainga’a, Ned Hanigan, Michael Hooper (c), Sekope Kepu, Tolu Latu, Brandon Paenga-Amosa, David Pocock, Tatafu Polota-Nau, Tom Robertson, Izack Rodda, Pete Samu, Rob Simmons, Scott Sio, Caleb Timu, Lukhan Tui, Taniela Tupou, Tom Banks, Kurtley Beale, Israel Folau, Bernard Foley, Will Genia, Dane Haylett-Petty, Reece Hodge, Marika Koroibete, Jack Maddocks, Nick Phipps, Joe Powell, Matt Toomua.
