Moore returns to Wallabies' starting line-up


Australia captain Stephen Moore returns as one of six changes to the Wallabies' starting side for their Test against Italy.

Moore is part of a new-look forward pack, joined by Brumbies duo Scott Sio and Rory Arnold and the Melbourne Rebels' Lopeti Timani for Saturday's clash in Brisbane.

He will make his 120th Test appearance, moving into outright 10th for most international caps.

Sefa Naivalu and Rob Horne are also starting as the Wallabies look to rebound from their surprise 24-19 loss to Scotland.

Australia are unbeaten in 16 previous meetings with Italy.


Australia: Israel Folau, Dane Haylett-Petty, Rob Horne, Karmichael Hunt, Sefa Naivalu, Bernard Foley, Will Genia; Scott Sio, Stephen Moore, Allan Alaalatoa, Rory Arnold, Adam Coleman, Ned Hanigan, Michael Hooper, Lopeti Timani.
Replacements: To be named.
