McKee, at a press conference yesterday:

I am very pleased to be able to name a very strong team for this all important match against Australia in Cardiff.

Changes to the forward pack reflect the depth of strength in the squad and the different type of game (from match 1 against England) we expect against Australia.

The team have quickly settled into our new base in Swansea and training sessions have been short and intense over Sunday and today in preparation for Wednesday’s match.
