Australia Squad for England Series 2022

Australia Squad for England Series 2022

Dave Rennie has named a 35-player Australia squad for July’s three-Test series against England.

Waratahs back-row Michael Hooper will captain the Wallabies squad, which includes six uncapped players – Pone Fa’amausili, Nick Frost, Jed Holloway, Cadeyrn Neville, David Porecki and Suliasi Vunivalu.

Brumbies lock Neville gets his first international call-up at the age of 33 while Vunivalu is selected having impressed for the Reds following his switch from rugby league.

Rennie’s three overseas-based picks for the matches in Perth, Brisbane and Sydney are fly-half Quade Cooper, center Samu Kerevi and wing Marika Koroibete.

Reece Hodge is arguably the most high-profile omission while Izack Rodda is ruled out with a foot injury. Fraser McReight is another not included, with Rennie saying the back-rower will benefit more from playing in the Pacific Nations Cup with Australia A.
