Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Soon-to-be Saint Rob Horne has been called into the Australia team as they prepare to face Italy on Saturday (June 24th).

After being beaten by Scotland in Sydney last weekend, Australian Head Coach Michael Cheika, has made six changes to Australia's starting line-up, including bringing in Horne at outside centre.

The already 33-time capped Wallaby will face off with Italy in his first start for his country since they hosted England in Sydney last summer.

The game will be broadcast on Sky Sports 2 from 5.55am.
