Suliasi Vunivalu is expected to get a place in the Wallabies match-day squad after the team suffered multiple injuries during the second test loss to England.

Fullback Jordan Petaia was replaced in the 3rd minute with a head injury and is expected to be out for a month.

Reece Hodge left the Pacific Nations Cup competition last week to provide cover at full-back for the Wallabies.

The injury to Petaia paves the way for Hodge at number 15, while Vunivalu’s much-hyped debut is expected on the wing or off the bench.

Wallabies and England will meet in the series decider at 9:55pm on Saturday.
