Code-hopper Koroibete set for Wallabies debut

Code-hopper Koroibete set for Wallabies debut”

With the Wallabies searching for their first win of the competition, coach Michael Cheika has made just one change to the starting side, elevating veteran lock Rob Simmons from the reserves.

Former rugby league star Marika Koroibete is poised to make his Wallabies debut in Canberra after being named on bench for their Rugby Championship clash with Argentina. Young Queensland lock Izack Rodda was named on the bench instead.

In 2017, Koroibete converted to rugby union and played for the Melbourne Rebels, where he scored six tries in 13 games.

Koroibete has taken the bench spot of another NRL convert in Curtis Rona, who made his debut against the All Blacks in the opening game of the Bledisloe in August.

Lezana will start at No. 8 in place of Benjamin Macone, and Landajo replaces former Canberra-based ACT Brumbies scrumhalf Tomas Cubelli.

Australia are now third on the Rugby Championship standings following a draw and two defeats while Argentina are yet to register a point after two defeats to South Africa and another loss to New Zealand.

Argentina: Emiliano Boffelli, Matias Moroni, Matias Orlando, Jeronimo de la Fuente, Ramiro Moyano, Nicolas Sanchez, Martin Landajo, Tomas Lezana, Javier Ortega Desio, Pablo Matera, Matias Alemanno, Guido Petti, Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, Agustin Creevy (captain), Lucas Noguera.
