Fiji born Marika Koroibete has been named to start on the left wing against Argentina tomorrow night.

Fiji born Marika Koroibete who has just resigned with Rugby Australia to the end of 2019 has been named to start on the left wing against Argentina tomorrow night.

Coach Michael Cheika starts Israel Folau on the right wing for tomorrow night’s clash, meaning the in‑form Dane Haylett‑Petty will remain at fullback.

Folau hasn't started a test match on the wing since the 2013 Bledisloe Cup, having worn the No.15 jersey for his last 61 consecutive international appearances.

Star flanker David Pocock has also been earmarked for a return to the starting side after missing last week's win over the Springboks.

Meanwhile veteran prop Sekope Kepu has returned to the 23‑man squad after surprisingly missing selection last week, replacing reserve prop Tom Robertson.

Cheika has resisted calls to start Taniela Tupou after his match‑turning performance off the bench against the Springboks.

The Wallabies will face Argentina at 10pm tomorrow night.

Meanwhile if the All Blacks win against the Springboks tomorrow night then they will successfully defend the Rugby Championship title.

The All Blacks will take on the Springboks at 7.35pm tomorrow
