Uru, Waqanitawase start for Aust A

Seru Uru and Mark Waqanitawase have been named in the run-on side for Australia A in their Pacific Nations Cup opener with Samoa tomorrow.

Utility forward Uru shifts from his preferred blindside flanker role into left lock, with Waqanitawase to shore up the backline at openside wing.

Former Labasa footballer and Wallabies winger Filipo Daugunu has missed out on selection due to injury but is expected to be fit in time for next week’s Flying Fijians clash.

Brumbies halfback Ryan Lonergran will captain the side, alongside vice captains, openside flanker Fraser McFreight and fullback Reece Hodge.

The match kicks off at the HFC Bank Stadium at 1pm tomorrow.

Australia A line-up: Matt Gibson, Billy Pollard, Tom Robertson, Seru Uru, Ryan Smith, Tim Anstee, Fraser McReight, Will Harris, Ryan Longeran, Tane Edmed, Jock Campbell, Hamish Stewart, Lalakai Foketi, Mark Waqanitawase, Reece Hodge, Feleti Kaitu’u Harry Hooper, Archer Holz, Hugh Sinclair, Langi Gleeson, James Tuttle, Hudson Creighton, Dylan Pietsch
