The Wallabies will be desperate to bounce back from the disappointing 24-19 defeat to Scotland in Sydney last weekend.
The side came in for heavy criticism from the Australian media and fans, with one supporter’s enraged facebook post going viral. Coach Michael Cheika has reportedly pinned the letter from Jack Quigley on the team’s notice board as a message to his players.
And Cheika has delivered on his promise to ring the changes in the aftermath of that morale-sapping defeat.
Stephen Moore’s return to the starting hooker spot and the on-field captaincy headlines the reshuffle, while Lopeti Timani, Rob Horne and Sefa Naivalu will play their first Tests of the series, coming in for Scott Higginbotham, Tevita Kuridrani and Eto Nabuli, respectively.
Meanwhile. Scott Sio’s minutes late in the game against Scotland were enough to prove his worth as a run-on prop, lining up alongside childhood friend Allan Alaalatoa for the first time in a Wallabies Test.
And Rory Arnold has usurped his club captain Sam Carter for a spot in the second row, reuniting with Adam Coleman, after the pair became a regular duo in 2016.
Italy have never beaten the Wallabies and the last time the sides met was way back in 2013. The Azzurri are in a similar situation to the Wallabies, also coming off the back of a shock victory in a match they were favourites to win, going down 22-19 to Fiji after a last-gasp Ben Volavola drop-goal.
And the previous weekend they were dismantled by the Scots 34-13 only a few months after same side beat them 29-0 in the Six Nations.
It’s a clash between two sides with low squad morale. But beware of the wounded animal (they say) so expect the players on the pitch to be fighting to prove their worth.
