The Wallabies have made four changes for tonight’s Rugby Championship match against South Africa.

There are two new faces in the starting front‑row with Sekope Kepu and Tatafu Polota‑Nau replacing Alan Alalaatoa and Stephen Moore, while Adam Coleman returns at lock.

In the backs, a season‑ending injury to Dane Haylett‑Petty opens the door for Reece Hodge at right wing.

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has shown faith in Samu Kerevi, bringing him back into the 23 to face the Springboks, but warned there is some tough competition bearing down on him.

Tevita Kuridrani will start at outside centre while Henry Speight will start on the right wing.

Meanwhile, South Africa made two changes to their starting line‑up, with Ross Cronje returning to the team after missing the second Argentina match with an ankle sprain.

In the second row, Franco Mostert has been given the weekend off after heavy workload over the last few months.

Stormers lock Pieter‑Steph du Toit makes a comeback after starting off the bench in all five previous Tests for South Africa.

Handré Pollard makes his return to Test rugby off the bench.

The Wallabies will take on South Africa at 10 tonight.
