The Wallabies squad is selected from Australian players plying their trade in Super Rugby AU. There is also the option to pick overseas-based players but Wallabies coach Dave Rennie has publicly stated his preference to pick locally-based players.
The 36-man Wallabies squad has been named for the Spring Tour of Europe, which starts against Scotland on Sunday October 30 (AEDT) and will conclude on Sunday November 27 (AEDT) against Wales.
Michael Hooper is back from his leave of absence due to mental health concerns but will not be captain, while five uncapped players have been named.
Matt Philip was originally named, but ruptured an ACL at training just days out from the squad’s departure, forcing him out. His replacement has not yet been named.
