Welsh test for Beale

FULLBACK Kurtley Beale will make his Test return as one of two changes to the Wallabies starting side to face Wales in Sydney on Saturday afternoon.

Beale will wear the No.15 jersey for the first time since last year's Rugby World Cup bronze medal clash with Wales, with Adam Ashley-Cooper moving to the right wing in place of Cooper Vuna.
