Wallabies confirm bench for England

Michael Cheika has finalised his Wallabies bench

Wallabies head coach Michael Cheika has confirmed his replacements bench for the third and final Test against England at Allianz Stadium in Sydney on Saturday.

Western Force lock Adam Coleman is set to make his debut off the bench and become just the third Tasmanian to wear Wallaby Gold while Taqele Naiyaravoro returns to the match day 23 for the first time since the Wallabies historic Test against the USA in Chicago last year.

Wycliff Palu also makes a welcome comeback after injury forced an early flight home from last year’s Rugby World Cup.
