The Wallabies, coming off three-point losses to both France and Ireland, recalled Rob Horne on the wing to fill the void and selected Sean McMahon on the blindside flank to replace Luke Jones. The pack was otherwise unchanged, with lock Rob Simmons selected to earn his 50th test cap - one of six Australian forwards to achieve that milestone in 2014.

Australia opened its five-match tour with wins over the Barbarians in London and Wales in Cardiff, before losing 29-26 in Paris and 26-23 at Dublin. Kuridrani sustained a low-grade ankle injury in the loss to Ireland.
