However coach Eddie O'Sullivan has opted for David Humphreys at out-half, the Dungannon man also set to lead the side.
Meanwhile the Wallabies have named their side and it includes Waratahs centre Morgan Turinui and Reds centre Steve Kefu, however an abdominal muscle injury sustained at training earlier today has now put Turinui in doubt and league convert Mat Rogers is on standby.
