September 4, 2015 12:55 am
Fijian winger, Taqele Naiyaravoro has been named in the reserves bench for the Wallabies’ Rugby World Cup warm-up match against USA this weekend.
The New South Wales giant back was initially dropped from the Wallabies World Cup 31-member squad but has impressed selectors in his two recent performances for the World XV and Barbarian sides.
Naiyaravoro is on standby for the back-line as injury cover for the tournament in England.
Prop forward, James Slipper has been named as skipper with Michael Hooper and Adam Ashley-Cooper named as his assistants.
USA will host the Wallabies in the warm-up match on Sunday at 11:40am in Chicago.
The Wallabies will face the Flying Fijians in their opening World Cup pool match on September 23rd at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
