Wallaby coach Ewen McKenzie has done what Robbie Deans refused to do, bring back Quade Cooper. The big question is, will he sink or swim?
Cooper is one of a few changes made to the Australian side after their two losses in the opening rounds in the Rugby Championship. Israel Folau makes the shift to fullback, replacing Jesse Mogg, which opens up a spot on the wing for Western Force flyer Nick Cummins.
The only other change sees Sekope Kepu getting a run in the three jersey, replacing Ben Alexander.
On the bench, the only new face is Jake Schatz, who will make his debut should he come onto the field.
