Australia's formation for the Bledisloe Cup opener against New Zealand

Australia will seek to win in the Eden park of Auckland after 35 years. The Wallabies confirmed their formation to face the All blacks in New Zealand. The game can be followed live this Saturday, at 3:50 (Arg) on ​​ESPN (Arg / Uru / Par) and ESPN 3 (Col / Ecu / Per / Chi / Ven / Bol).

The most resounding novelty of the team led by David Rennie is the return of Jordan Petaia as wing. The Wallabies will not have the sanctioned Marika Koroibete and are betting on the youngster instead.

In addition, Andrew Kellaway will occupy the position in which Filipo Daugunu should be, who misses that match due to an arm injury.

Harry Wilson will play number eight in place of Isi Naisarani who is also suspended along with Koroibete and Fa’amuasili.

Finally, among the most important novelties of Australia, Tate McDermott won the arm wrestling to Jake Gordon. While Tupou and Hodge will wait at the bank to enter the complement.
