Koroibete has phenomenal physicality: Rennie

Wallabies Head Coach Dave Rennie is impressed with the fitness of Fijian star winger Marika Koroibete who says has a phenomenal physicality.
 
 Rennie has confirmed Quade Cooper, Samu Kerevi and Koroibete as the three International selections for the England series.
 
"It's probably not that secret anyway but we’ve got Quade, Samu and Marika all coming back," he told reporters.
 
"Marika is one of the best wingers in the world. I'm not sure there's another winger with his work ethic and repeatability. He's just top gear all day so we’re looking forward to getting that back."
 
"It's exciting. I'm not sure if you saw the (Japanese League One) Final with Panasonic and Marika was phenomenal so he hasn't lost any of his physicality or his work ethic so we're excited to see him back."
 
The Wallabies will name a 35-player squad on Sunday before they host the first International event against South Africa on September 3.
 
He also added that Quade Cooper and former Australian Olympian Samu Kerevi will also be players to look out for in the final squad.
 
"Quade and Samu are here in Sydney just getting medical checks, Marika went straight to Fiji to spend some time with his family and he’ll be back on the weekend."
 
"Samu only played a couple of Tests but was nominated for (World Rugby) Player of the Year which only highlights the impact he had."
