SYDNEY (AP) Scrumhalf and former captain Will Genia has been recalled to an Australian squad for the last two rounds of the Rugby Championship that will be without giant young lock Will Skelton.
Genia and veteran prop Benn Robinson have been included in a Wallabies squad for the first time this season as head coach Ewen McKenzie copes with a long list of injuries. As many as 13 players were unavailable for selection and McKenzie is happy to have been able to call on the experience of Genia and Robinson as Australia faces tough away tests against Argentina and South Africa.
Another former captain, James Horwill, has been named as one of only three locks in the touring party, taking his place alongside Sam Carter and Rob Simmons at Skelton's expense.
