Jones resists urge for change

17/11/2004 11:21:36 PM Comments (0)

After saying he would have to rethink the Wallabies' personnel following last week's loss to France, coach Eddie Jones has made just one injury-enforced change to the side for Saturday's Test against Scotland.

No.8 John Roe has a neck injury which has kept him out of the 22, with David Lyons coming off the bench to reclaim his spot at the back of the scrum.

NSW backrower Stephen Hoiles was the only player from Australia A's win over the French Barbarians in Paris to impress Jones enough to force his way into the 22 and takes Mark Chisholm's place on the bench.

Matt Giteau came off the field in the 27-14 loss to France early in the second half with a knee injury but has trained the last two days and will take his place at inside centre, leaving Elton Flatley on the bench.

The Wallabies travel from Paris to Edinburgh for Saturday's Test in Glasgow.

Australia: Chris Latham, Clyde Rathbone, Stirling Mortlock, Matt Giteau, Lote Tuqiri, Stephen Larkham (vice-capt), George Gregan (capt), David Lyons, Phil Waugh (vice capt), George Smith, Daniel Vickerman, Justin Harrison, Al Baxter, Jeremy Paul, Bill Young. Reserves: Brendan Cannon, Matt Dunning, Radike Samo, Stephen Hoiles, Elton Flatley, Mat Rogers, Wendell Sailor.
