    Walleroos v Black Ferns 18 August 2018

    Nine new faces for Wallaroos in Sydney
    Today at 1:00 PM Womens International
    by Sarah Friend

    The Wallaroos will have nine new faces in their team as they look to make a mark against the Black Ferns in Sydney on Saturday.

    Uni7s star Emily Chancellor headlines a list of debutants that also includes four other starters in Georgia O’Neill, Crystal Maguire, Atasi Lafai and Mhicca Carter, while Darryl Wickliffe, Melissa Fatu, Alice Tonumaivao and Shanice Parker have been named on the bench.

    Maguire will step into the inside centre spot in place of Sarah Riordan, who suffered a heartbreaking ankle injury at training on Wednesday, ruling her out of the Test.

    One of the more intriguing picks is Samantha Treherne on the wing, after starring at fullback for the Wallaroos last year and for Queensland in the Super W.

    Former Sevens star Mahalia Murphy will take the 15 jersey for the match, with the Laurie O'Reilly Memorial Trophy up for grabs.

    The Wallaroos come into the Test with their most finely-tuned preparation yet, after the inaugural Super W competition and months of unprecedented state-based training camps.

    Coach Dwayne Nestor said the team was raring to go for the Sydney Test.

    "We’ve had a really excellent build up to our first match of 2018 and the team is chomping at the bit to get out there and play some rugby," he said.

    “I’ve been really impressed with how this team has taken on the detail of the way we want to play and physically worked hard over the last few months; it’s all come together in camp quite well.

    “It was really disappointing to lose Sarah Riordan to injury yesterday, but from injury comes an opportunity for Crystal Maguire to show what she can do in the centres.

    “This match is going to be incredibly tough, but it’s a challenge we are really looking forward to.”

    The Black Ferns named their team earlier on Thursday, with five debutants in the mix.

    The Wallaroos take on the Black Ferns for the Laurie O'Reilly Cup from 5:15pm AEST at ANZ Stadium on Saturday, 18 August, LIVE on FOX SPORTS. The Wallabies also host the All Blacks in the first Bledisoe Cup game, kicking off at 7:45pm AEST. LIVE on FOX SPORTS and via RUGBY.com.au RADIO. Buy tickets here.

    Mhicca Carter on the wing? She played well in the Super W, but I'd have said the Force Women's winger who should be called up would be Courtney Hodder. I know she's only just turned 18, but she was a real live-wire from wing or full-back.

    Pretty sure she's injured at the moment, it's popped up a few times in similar threads.
