The Australian team to face the Springboks this weekend has been announced with Kurtley Beale recalled to the fullback position and Adam Ashley-Cooper shifted into the centres.

The backline sees a few changes, with Rob Horne dropped to make space for Ashley-Cooper, and the injured Drew Mitchell being replaced by Dom Shipperley.

Amongst the forward, Radike Samo gets a start at the back of the scrum with Scott Higginbotham playing off the bench as the only change.

On the bench, Tatafu Polota Nau comes into the 16 jersey in place of Saia Fainga’a, and Mike Harris coming onto the bench.

Australia: Kurtley Beale, Dominic Shipperley, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Berrick Barnes, Digby Ioane, Quade Cooper, Will Genia (capt), Radike Samo, Michael Hooper, Dave Dennis, Nathan Sharpe, Sitaleki Timani, Ben Alexander, Stephen Moore, Benn Robinson

Reserves: Tatafu Polota Nau, James Slipper, Scott Higginbotham, Liam Gill, Nick Phipps, Mike Harris, Anthony Fainga’a
