Wallabies are making a change

Wallabies trainer Dave Rennie made just one change from the squad that had to organize this exciting return to Lang Park on Wednesday night.

Taniela Tupou came in sideways with a tight head after playing a pivotal role on the bench in Brisbane, relegating Allan Alaalatoa to the bench.

“Taniela had a real impact on both sides of the ball when he came into play at [Lang Park] and we will seek to have him do the same from the start in Melbourne, ”said Rennie.

Making an impact is something Tupou is well versed in, so expect a lot from the 25-year-old from the start.

Here is the rest of the range.
