Koroibete to miss Pumas re-match

Fijian winger Marika Koroibete will miss next week's re-match with Argentina in Gold Coast as he will head home to be with his family and new-born baby in Melbourne.

The 29-year-old has been away from his family for several months and is yet to see his new-born child.

“Marika’s heading home after this Test, he’s been away from a new baby for a long time now so there will be one or two other changes potentially,” Coach Dave Rennie told Nine News.

“We want to make sure we’re picking players who have earned the right to play but there’s been some really tight selections recently and some guys deserve an opportunity."

The victory saw the return of James O'Connor, who made an instant impact from the bench as he set up the game-sealing try to Andrew Kellaway.

With the Super Rugby AU MVP making his return off the bench, Rennie was coy about where he might feature next week, especially after the strong performances of Quade Cooper and Reece Hodge
