JOSH Adams, Tomas Francis and Aaron Wainwright have all been declared fit to start for Wales against Australia in Cardiff on Saturday.

Wayne Pivac’s side face the Wallabies in their final match of the autumn following defeats by New Zealand and South Africa and victory over Fiji last weekend.

Head coach Pivac makes seven changes in total from the team that beat the Fijians, with recalls for centre Uilisi Halaholo, scrum-half Tomos Williams, prop Wyn Jones and lock Seb Davies.

Adams, who was due to start at centre last Sunday before pulling out through injury, returns to the wing, prop Francis replaces the injured WillGriff John and Wainwright slots in at number eight.

Taine Basham moves back to openside as a result and blindside Ellis Jenkins continues as captain after leading Wales to their first win of the autumn.

The Principality Stadium will stage the campaign finale as Wales welcome Australia for the first time since claiming a home victory over the Southern Hemisphere side in November 2018.

Prop James Slipper captains the visitors with Michael Hooper out injured.

Dan Biggar, who kicked the winning penalty in a tense 9-6 victory three years ago, remains in the outside-half position.

Adams is joined by Louis Rees-Zammit and full-back Liam Williams in the back three, while Nick Tompkins keeps his place in the midfield.

Hooker Ryan Elias remains the only constant in the front row, as Adam Beard partners Davies in the second row.

“It’s been a tough campaign but one where we’ve exposed more players to this level of rugby, which all bodes well for the future,” said Pivac.

“With the injuries we’ve faced, we have had to adapt and those are opportunities that some of the players have taken very well.

“Australia have been on the road for a while now, the series they had down south and a couple of losses in the last couple of games.

“They’ll be hurting from that and they’ll want to finish their tour on a high note, as we’d like to finish our campaign on a high note. It bodes well for a pretty interesting fixture.

“Dave Rennie brings a physical approach to the game and we certainly expect that from the Australians, but we have to be able to match that and impose ourselves on the game.

“It’s going to be an enthralling encounter and a great way to finish a series. We’re really looking forward to Saturday.

“This week I’d encourage [the crowd] to be even louder, and noisier, and back the boys.

“They’ve worked really hard so to have that 16th man, if you like, really pushing and driving the team on, we’d really, really appreciate that.”
