Speaking of his decisions, Rennie said, “It’s probably not such a secret anyway, but Quade, Samu and Marika are back.

“Quade and Samu are here in Sydney, having a medical examination right now, and Marika has gone straight to Fiji to spend some time with her family, and he will be back for the weekend.

“Marika is one of the best wingers in the world – I’m not sure there is another winger with his work ethic and repetitiveness. He’s in top gear all day, so we can’t wait to get him back.

Izack Rodda is a notable absentee for the Wallabies who recently won the 2015 Cook Cup and will be looking to gain momentum this summer ahead of the World Cup in France next year.

Rodd’s foot injured kicked off Australia’s little defeat to Wales alongside Kurtley Beale in November.

Eddie Jones’ England will play three games against Australia as they want to extend their winning streak against Rennie’s side by winning the last eight games.

Australia will host Jones’ team in Perth on July 2, Brisbane on July 9 and Sydney on July 16.
