Australia head coach Dave Rennie heaped praise on powerhouse prop Taniela Tupou after recalling him to the starting line-up following his return from injury.

He said: “It’s great to have Taniela back this week and he’s extremely excited to pull on the gold jersey in his hometown,.

He added of his other selections: “Equally Jordy [Petaia] is looking forward to the opportunity at fullback and of course it will be a proud night for Nick [Frost] and his family for his Test debut,”
