Great Britain shake-up for Australia Test
Great Britain has punted on a new halfback combination for Saturday's Tri Nations Test against Australia.
Bradford halves Iestyn Harris and Paul Deacon will play their first Test together with the homeside desperate to win to keep their series hopes alive. Leeds skipper Kevin Sinfield moves to loose forward to accomodate the introduction of Harris in the wake of last weekend's 42-26 defeat to New Zealand.
The clash with the Australians will be watched by a 25,050 sell-out crowd at the JJB Stadium in Wigan.
Great Britain: PAUL WELLENS BRIAN CARNEY MARTIN GLEESON KEITH SENIOR LEON PRYCE IESTYN HARRIS PAUL DEACON STUART FIELDEN KEIRON CUNNINGHAM ADRIAN MORLEY PAUL JOHNSON JAMIE PEACOCK (c) KEVIN SINFIELD
