The Australian team to play Scotland has been announced with David Pocock leading the Wallabies out when they play Scotland in Newcastle on Tuesday 6th June.

"This is not the best team that Robbie Deans could have picked," Matt Burke said on Triple M's The Ruck rugby show bearing in mind the players backing up and the Welsh test four days later.

"Losing that game against Samoa, Robbie Deans has realised that you have to have a sprinkling of experience and Test players in the side," Tim Horan added.

Despite both Tim and Matt tipping the Wallabies to win Burke says Scotland will be out "to spoil the party" playing an unconventional style of game, moving up in defence with a lot of young players being hard for the Wallabies to read.
