Koroibete returns in one of four changes for the Wallabies

Dave Rennie has made four changes to the Wallabies side for the second Bledisloe Test.

Winger Marika Koroibete returns to the starting XV with Nic White added to the bench. Koroibete replaces Jordan Petaia after serving his one-match suspension for breaking team protocols.

He is joined on the wing by Andrew Kellaway after an impressive showing in his starting debut. Rebels duo Matt To'omua and Matt Philip have also earned starts following their impactful performances from the bench during last week's eight-point defeat.

To'omua will partner Hunter Paisami in the centres, with Paisami shifting to outside centre whilst Philip will partner Darcy Swain in their first Test start together in the second row. Lachie Swinton will make hsi return from injury at blindside flank with Michael Hooper and Rob Valetini completing the back row, the latter shifting to number eight.

Nic White is joined on the bench by Brumbies teammate Scott Sio, who are set for their first appearance for the Wallabies in 2021.
