Brumbies prop Allan Alaalatoa has been named Captain of the Wallabies for Saturday's Bledisloe Cup opener against New Zealand. This comes as part of several bold decisions made by coach Eddie Jones, including seven starting changes to the team. Michael Hooper is not included due to a calf strain, and James Slipper will come off the bench. Rebels playmaker Carter Gordon will make his first Test start, replacing Quade Cooper, and Jordan Petaia will start at outside centre. The Wallabies are aiming to make Australia proud in the important game against New Zealand.
