Tigers duo included in Australia Test team

Leicester Tigers duo Matt Toomua and Tatafu Polota-Nau have been named to start in Australia’s Rugby Championship clash with Argentina on the Gold Coast.

Toomua, who was the man-of-the-match in last week’s win over the Springboks in Brisbane, starts at inside centre for the second successive Test while Polota-Nau has been named at hooker for the fourth week running by head coach Michael Cheika.

Australia, who suffered defeats to the All Blacks in the opening fortnight of the competition, are searching for back-to-back wins against a Pumas side searching for their second win, after going down to New Zealand last weekend.

Fellow Tiger Gaston Cortes, who came off the bench in New Zealand in Round 3, has been left out of the matchday squad by Argentina coach Mario Ledesma for the clash with the Wallabies.
