Cheika’s still got that old magic touch. His first act as Argentina coach was to lead the team to a stunning Test series victory over Scotland last month, and most ominous of all is that he knows many of the Aussie starters – not least skipper Michael Hooper – inside-out.
Emiliano Boffelli was the hero of that series, his last-gasp try completing a famous second-half comeback that had looked inconceivable when the Pumas fell 15 points behind with half an hour to go. Like all of Cheika’s teams, this is one that’s been geared to fight tooth and nail to the bitter end.
Quade Cooper is back in the Wallabies’ first XV after having to sit out the England Test series, but with partner in crime Samu Kerevi out with an ACL injury, the Hanazono Liners fly-half needs to prove that he’s mature enough to orchestrate this team.
That troublesome fullback role now apparently belongs to Tom Wright, despite Jordan Petaia long being destined for it. The Queensland Reds man has instead been shifted to the wing.
