Rugby wallabies Argentina David Pocock back Israel Folau named on wing


The Wallabies have received a big boost ahead Saturday night’s Test against Argentina at Cbus Stadium on the Gold Coast, with David Pocock and Israel Folau named to return.

Pocock (neck) and Folau (ankle) both trained strongly this week and are set to face the Pumas.

Coach Michael Cheika has picked Folau on the right wing, with Dane Haylett-Petty to retain the No. 15 jersey after a pair of dominant displays at fullback.

Adam Coleman will start on the bench having returned to the Wallabies’ camp after the birth of his first child in Melbourne on Sunday.

The two teams have locked horns twice before at the Gold Coast stadium, with Australia having secured hard-fought, single-digit wins on both occasions.
