  • Former garbo to make shock Wallabies debut

Hooker Brandon Paenga-Amosa and No.8 Caleb Timu will make their debuts for the Wallabies in Saturday's first of three Tests against Six Nations champions Ireland in Brisbane.

Australia team: Israel Folau, Marika Koroibete, Samu Kerevi, Kurtley Beale, Dane Haylett-Petty, Bernard Foley, Will Genia; Scott Sio, Brandon Paenga-Amosa, Sekope Kepu, Izack Rodda, Adam Coleman, David Pocock, Michael Hooper, Caleb Timu.

After a week of talks between Rugby Australia and New Zealand Rugby to secure the use of Pete Samu, the Crusaders lock has been named on the bench, in what could be his Wallabies debut.

Paenga-Amosa worked as a trash collector for eight months after finishing school in Sydney before studying theology.

Paenga-Amosa, who was born in New Zealand and raised in western Sydney, has had a rapid rise to global rugby after being picked up by the Reds this season following an impressive performance in the last National Rugby Championship competition. He was playing Sydney club rugby for Southern Districts at this time previous year.

Tolu Latu will be his backup on the bench.

Before last year's NRC they weren't even on Cheika's radar but their form and the retirement of Stephen Moore, the resting of Tatafu Polota-Nau and injury to Rebels rake Jordan Uelese has propelled them into the Test squad.

Ireland is ranked No. 2 in global rugby after claiming the Six Nations Grand Slam.

Veteran flyhalf Johnny Sexton was relegated to the bench to allow Joey Carbery to start a test match for just the third time. Blindside flanker Peter O'Mahony will take over the captaincy.
