Wallabies forced to make backline switch against Scotland

THE ramifications of a boozy night out in Dublin will be there for all to see in Edinburgh when the Wallabies are forced to make a left-field backline switch against Scotland.

Coach Ewen McKenzie's sensational decision to stand down starting wingers Adam Ashley-Cooper and Nick Cummins from Sunday morning's (AEDT) Test at Murrayfield will severely compromise his selections out wide.

Outside centre Tevita Kuridrani already faces the dire prospect of being rubbed out of the game due to his dangerous tip tackle on Peter O'Mahony in the 32-15 win over Ireland at Aviva Stadium.

Australia remains hopeful of having the in-form Kuridrani exonerated and will fight his charge in London late on Tuesday, but his chances look grim.

Without three of their four incumbent three-quarters, and Israel Folau a virtually immovable asset at fullback, McKenzie will be forced to be creative with his selections.
