4 Fijians to start for Wallabies

Fijian players will create another slice of history for the Wallabies this Saturday when four of them for the very first time run onto the field in the green and gold jumper against Japan.

Coach Michael Cheika released his lineup for the match today- giving the Fijian quartet their first start together.

In-form winger Marika Koroibete will feature on the left wing, Samu Kerevi on the inside centre, Tevita Kuridrani at outside centre while Henry Speight will be at right wing.

Of the four, Kuridrani is the most experienced Fijian player in the team having featured for Australia in 54 matches while Speight has 17 caps, Kerevi has 14 caps and Koroibete who made a switch from Rugby League late last year has 4 tests to his name.

Wallabies lineup (1-15)- Scott Sio, Tatafu Polota-Nau, Sekope Kepu, Rob Simmons, Adam Coleman, Ned Hanigan, Michael Hooper (C), Sean McMohan, Nick Phipps, Reece Hodge, Marika Koroibete, Samu Kerevi, Tevita Kuridrani, Henry Speight, Kurtley Beale.
