Wallabies drop White & Horwill

The Australian World Cup squad has been announced with a few surprise inclusions and omissions, most notable being ex-captain James Horwill.

Apart from Horwill missing out, Nic White must wonder what more he must do to prove his worth after also missing the cut. Coach Michael Cheika has opted for only two specialist scrumhalves in Nick Phipps and Will Genia, Matt Giteau obviously the other back up.

Horwill misses out to Dean Mumm, Rob Simmons, Kane Douglas and Will Skelton.

The surprise inclusions are prop Toby Smith and flank Sean McMahon, neither who have had any game time with the Wallabies so far this year.

Australia squad:

Backs: Israel Folau, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Rob Horne, Drew Mitchell, Henry Speight, Joe Tomane, Tevita Kuridrani, Kurtley Beale, Matt Giteau, Matt Toomua, Quade Cooper, Bernard Foley, Will Genia, Nick Phipps

Forwards: Wycliff Palu, David Pocock, Michael Hooper, Ben McCalman, Sean McMahon, Scott Fardy, Kane Douglas, Dean Mumm, Rob Simmons, Will Skelton, Stephen Moore (captain), Tatafu Polota-Nau, Greg Holmes, Sekope Kepu, Scott Sio, James Slipper, Toby Smith
