Rugby-Polota-Nau drafted into Wallabies squad
The Leicester rake, who played his last test against Argentina on the Gold Coast in September, will hook up with the 32-man squad in Wales ahead of the Nov. 10 test at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, the Wallabies said in a media release on Saturday.
New South Wales Waratahs lock Jed Holloway and Queensland hooker Brandon Paenga-Amosa will return to Australia after training with Michael Cheika's Wallabies at their World Cup base in Japan.
Cheika has also picked a pair of uncapped loose forwards to travel with the squad as development players in Fiji-born Melbourne Rebel Isi Naisarani and ACT Brumbies' Rob Valetini.
"Naisarani will become eligible for Australia in April next year, and has already been touted as a future Wallaby backrower after several bruising displays in ... Super Rugby and the National Rugby Championship," the team said.
Following Wales, the Wallabies, who lost their last match 37-20 to the All Blacks in Yokohama last Saturday, wrap up their season with tests against Italy in Padua and England at Twickenham.
