review of selection policy

Wallabies to review selection policy after trio opt out of autumn UK tour

  • Japan-based players including Quade Cooper have pulled out
  • ‘We want guys who are desperate to be Wallabies,’ says coach

The Wallabies coach Dave Rennie has said Australia will review its selection policy at the end of the year after the fly-half Quade Cooper joined centre Samu Kerevi and back rower Sean McMahon in opting out of the tour of Britain.

Rennie confirmed on Thursday that Cooper had become the third of the Japan-based trio to choose club over country after playing for the Wallabies during the Rugby Championship.
