Michael Cheika has made one big change to his team for the World Cup final against New Zealand this Saturday. One notable feature of the Wallabies campaign has been their impressive scrum which has defied stereotypes.
The Australian scrum struggled in the semi-final against Argentina, which was partly down to the strong Argentine scrum, and party due to the absence of their young prop Scott Sio. James Slipper was given a tough time, and Cheika will be delighted that the 23-year-old Sio has recovered from injury.
Cheika also named David Pocock and Israel Folau in the team, after both came back for the semi-final having missed the quarters against Scotland.

Galway born hooker Stephen Moore captains the Wallabies, in what should be a cracking game between the top two ranked teams in the world.
