Reds rested for Wallabies clash against Samoa

Reds rested for Wallabies clash against Samoa

Wallabies coach Robbie Deans has rested most of the Queensland Reds who clinched the Super 15 championship for Australia's season-opening rugby international against Samoa.
Winger Digby Iaone, who scored a pivotal try in last weekend's 18-13 Super 15 final win over the Canterbury Crusaders, was the only Reds player selected in a below-strength starting XV for Sunday's test against Samoa.
Reds and Australian incumbent scrumhalf Will Genia, who scored the winning try against the Crusaders, was included on the Wallabies reserves bench along with Queensland backrowers Beau Robinson and Scott Higginbotham and hooker James Hanson.
Flyhalf Quade Cooper was not included in the squad, with Brumbies star Matt Giteau moving into the No. 10 jersey.
