4 changes for Wallabies ahead of England test

4 changes for Wallabies ahead of England test

Wallabies rugby coach Robbie Deans has made four changes from the team which beat Fiji last weekend for Saturday's first test against England.
James O'Connor displaces Kurtley Beale at fullback after scoring three tries for the Australian Barbarians team which drew 28-28 with England in Perth on Tuesday and Drew Mitchell returns in place of the injured Adam Ashley-Cooper on the left wing.
Deans has opted for a notably inexperienced front row combination of props Salesi Ma'afu and Ben Daley and hooker Saia Faingaa. Daley and Faingaa take places occupied by Benn Robinson and Huia Edmonds in the Fiji test.
