Pocock and Folau named to play against Argentina

David Pocock and Israel Folau have both been named in the Wallabies starting side to play Argentina in Monday morning's World Cup semi final. The pair have been declared fit for the clash after Friday's training session and will take their place in the starting XV, along with prop James Slipper who replaces the injured Scott Sio.   With the return of Pocock and Folau, Ben McCalman and Kurtley Beale revert to the bench alongside Toby Smith. Wallabies Coach Michael Cheika said: “James has been pushing for a starting spot with his performances as a finisher and I know he’ll take it with both hands. “James is a leader in our squad and has performed well through this tournament so far and in the lead-up matches. “This weekend is a great opportunity for the lads to improve on last week and take advantage of the chance to play on such a big stage. “This weekend we want to make Australia proud of their team.” Wallabies team to play Argentina 1.
