· Rugby World Cup
by Brumbies Media

Plus500 Brumbies prop partners, Scott Sio and Allan Alaalatoa will once again fill the bookend jerseys for the Wallabies in their crunch pool D clash against Wales.

The powerful pair will look to lock down a Welsh pack that can be very potent on their day, fellow Brumby James Slipper will also have an opportunity to contribute as a finisher. 

Rory Arnold retains his place in the second row while David Pocock will wear six for the second game in a row. 

Elsewhere, former Brumbies star Adam Ashley-Cooper starts on the wing in place of suspended Reece Hodge, becoming of just a handful of players who have performed at four Rugby World Cups. 

Australia last met Wales on the 2018 Spring Tour in Cardiff when the hosts dug deep for a gritty 9-6 win at Millennium Stadium.

The Wallabies and Wales have enjoyed some memorable battles at the Rugby World Cup, having met six times at Rugby’s showpiece (Australia W5, L1).
The Wallabies will next take on Uruguay in Oita on October 5 before shifting north again to Shizuoka for the final Pool D clash against Georgia the following weekend. The two highest-ranked teams at the end of the pool stage will advance to the Quarter Finals.
