    Wallabies look to Tatafu Polota-Nau to bolster sagging scrum against England

    Wallabies look to Tatafu Polota-Nau to bolster sagging scrum against England
    By Jim Morton
    June 13, 2010 .Hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau has been rushed back from injury and is in line to help shore up the Wallabies' demolished scrum in the second Test against England next weekend.

    Australia ensured they would retain the Cook Cup with a gutsy 27-17 first Test win at Subiaco Oval on Saturday night but they face a massive task to ensure there's no repeat of the set-piece slaughter which earned the tourists two pushover penalty tries.

    Polota-Nau has been named to make his return from shoulder and ankle injuries for the Australian Barbarians in Tuesday night's tour match against England at Gosford in a strong indicator he'll line up in the return Test at ANZ Stadium on Saturday.

    It's more the Props we need to worry about, but he would be a good starting point.
