Azzurri may flag in final tour outing
Cheika to shuffle pack again
Sky Sports 2, 6am Saturday
Stung by defeat to Scotland last week Australia need a decent performance against Italy but coach Michael Cheika has shuffled his team again for this third summer Test.
There are no debutants in the Wallabies line-up and still plenty of continuity at half-back with Karmichael Hunt again at inside centre, while Italy coach Conor O’Shea has made just three changes from last week’s defeat to Fiji.
A last-gasp drop goal sealed that 22-19 reverse as the Azzurri pack kept them in touch but they may not be able to keep tabs on the Wallabies so easily.
Italy may well flag in their third and final tour match and Australia can pull clear.
