SYDSYDNEY — Injured Wallabies trio Wycliff Palu, Sekope Kepu and Drew Mitchell have all been named for the final Bledisloe Cup Test of the year next Saturday.
Their inclusion is a further boost to the Wallabies who will also have the services of impressive utility back Adam Ashley-Cooper, who missed last week's 25-19 Rugby Championship victory over Argentina with concussion.
Mitchell and Palu have both endured horror stretches with injury, with the winger who has managed just four matches in the past two season making a return after injuring his ankle in the first Test of the season against the All Blacks in August. Backs: Mike Harris, Nick Cummins, Mitchell, Dominic Shipperley, Digby Ioane, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Ben Tapuai, Anthony Fainga'a, Pat McCabe, Kurtley Beale, Nick Phipps, Brett Sheehan. Forwards: Palu, Radike Samo, Scott Higginbotham, Michael Hooper, Liam Gill, Dave Dennis, Rob Simmons, Sitaleki Timani, Nathan Sharpe (capt), Kane Douglas, Kepu, Paddy Ryan, Ben Alexander, James Slipper, Benn Robinson, James Hanson, Saia Fainga'a, Tatafu Polota Nau.
