Australian tighthead prop Taniela Tupu is available to start as one of three Wallabies adjustments to face Springbox
Australia coach Dave Renee has defended religion a lot in the direction of Wallaby after beating South Africa last week in Brisbane to make three adjustments for the reunion of the Rugby Championships this weekend.
Nick White rose from the bench to take Tate McDermott to Scrum-Huff in a half-back partnership with Quad Cooper, who hit a clutch penalty for a 28-26 win in the final week on the Gold Coast in his first Czech for 4 years.
The reverse combination of the Lang Park check was in the entry row where Taniela Tupu would begin her first marketing campaign instead of the tighthead prop, replacing Alan Alalatoa, who has returned home to deliver her newborn.
James Slipper returns from the opposite side of the entry row instead of Angus Bell, who recalls tighthead Tom Robertson, known as one of the two alternate props on the bench, who has been playing his first watch since the first of 201.
Locke Darcy Swain, who missed last week’s check after suffering one of three losses to the All Blacks, could be named on the bench instead of Rob Lloyter.

Flanker Michael Hooper will captain his nation for the 60th check, which has surpassed the long-standing mark of the Wallabies excellent George Gregon.
“It’s an incredible milestone for Hoops in Brisbane on Saturday night and it’s his testimony as an individual and a participant,” Renee said this week.
“I’m so impressed with his management in and out of the sector and his drive to elevate every day.”
South Africa coach Jack Ninab named his approach on Wednesday, which last week brought about an effective and a strategic shift in the wrong approach.
