Updated: 

Marika Koroibete is among three uncapped players in Australia's 32-man squad for the Spring Tour.

Koroibete, who has signed with Melbourne Rebels after his stint in NRL, was included along with Kyle Godwin and Tolu Latu.

If he features in a Test, the 24-year-old Koroibete would be the first player since Tatafu Polota-Nau in 2005 to make a Wallabies appearance before a Super Rugby one.

Centre Samu Kerevi has missed out after undergoing surgery on an ankle injury.

The five-Test tour sees Australia take on Wales, Scotland, France, Ireland and England.

The first Test is against Wales on November 5.


Australia squad in full: Allan Alaalatoa, Rory Arnold, Adam Coleman, Quade Cooper, Kane Douglas, Scott Fardy, Israel Folau, Bernard Foley, Nick Frisby, Will Genia, Kyle Godwin, James Hanson, Dane Haylett-Petty, Reece Hodge, Michael Hooper, Sekope Kepu, Marika Koroibete, Tevita Kuridrani, Tolu Latu, Sean McMahon, Stephen Moore, Dean Mumm, Sefanaia Naivalu, Nick Phipps, David Pocock, Tom Robertson, Rob Simmons, Scott Sio, Will Skelton, Henry Speight, James Slipper, Lopeti Timani.
