Marika Koroibete will make his debut off the bench for the Wallabies in their Rugby Championship match against Argentina this Saturday.

Koroibete was first included in the Wallabies setup in last year’s Spring Tour but did not manage to crack a matchday 23 during that time.

The 25‑year‑old replaces fellow NRL convert Curtis Rona.

Tevita Kuridrani and Henry Speight will start against Argentina while Samu Kerevi has also been listed on the bench.

Former Wallabies captain Stephen Moore has missed out on a test return.

The All Blacks will take on the Springboks at 7.35pm Saturday while the Wallabies will host Argentina at 10pm Saturday.
