Hooker Brandon Paenga-Amosa and No 8 Caleb Tima will make their Test debuts after being named in the Wallabies’ starting lineup to face Ireland in Brisbane on Saturday.
The 22-year-old Paenga-Amosa will scrum down alongside front-row veterans Scott Sio and Sekope Kepu, while his Reds teammate Timu joins Michael Hooper and David Pocock in the loose trio. Izack Rodda and Adam Coleman are the preferred lock pairing.

Crusaders loose forward Pete Samu will make his debut if he comes off the bench.
