Four debutants named in Australia squad for autumn Tests

Four debutants have been named in the Australia squad for the autumn internationals against New Zealand and Tonga.

The Kangaroos face the Kiwis at Mt Smart Stadium on October 13 and the Mate Ma’a the week later at the same venue.

Latrell Mitchell, Tyrone Peachey, James Tedesco and Damien Cook are all set to make their debuts for the Kangaroos this autumn.

South Sydney Rabbitohs and Queensland star Greg Inglis will captain the side.
