Bledisloe Cup 2020: Wallabies make four changes for second test against All Blacks

Hooker Brandon Paenga-Amosa and flanker Ned Haigan will play their first tests for the Wallabies in two years after coach Dave Rennie made four changes to his side for the second Bledisloe Cup test against the All Blacks at Eden Park on Sunday.

Auckland-born Paenga-Amosa and Haigan make way for Folau Fainga'a and Pete Samu respectively in two changes made to the starting side. 

On the bench, Rob Valetini and Noah Lolesio have been cut from the squad with Liam Wright and Jordan Petaia added to the reserves. 

Paenga-Amosa last represented Australia in September 2018, while Hanigan has not played for the Wallabies since their northern tour in the same year. 

Rennie feels the changes will help the Wallabies break their Eden Park hoodoo which dates back 34 years. 

"We've got a group of 44-men who are all working hard and pushing for selection," says Rennie. 

"We've had massive support from back home and as a team we definitely feel that and it's something we'll draw on on Sunday afternoon.

"We know that New Zealand will step it up another level this weekend, we're excited by the challenge ahead."

Paenga-Amosa's inclusion comes after a below-par performance from Fainga'a at Sky Stadium last weekend where he had three lineout turnovers in the first half. 

While Hanigan will start at No. 6, Wilson shifts to the back of the scrum. The rest of the starting side is unchanged.

Last weekend, the Wallabies played out a 16-16 draw against the All Blacks in Wellington.
