Australia head coach Dave Rennie has called up six uncapped players for the summer series with England.

The Wallabies, who have lost their last three Tests, have named Pone Fa’amausili, Nick Frost, Jed Holloway, Cadeyrn Neville, David Porecki and Suliasi Vunivalu in a 35-man squad.

Japan-based trio Quade Cooper, Samu Kerevi and Marika Koroibete are also included.

Eddie Jones’ England will play three fixtures versus Australia in July aiming to extend their winning streak against Rennie’s men having won the last eight contests.

Izack Rodda is a notable absentee for the Wallabies, who last won the Cook Cup back in 2015 and will aim to build momentum this summer ahead of the World Cup in France next year.

Rodda, who has a foot injury, started Australia’s narrow loss to Wales in November alongside Kurtley Beale, another sidelined with fitness concerns and not in the squad.

The group will assemble on the Sunshine Coast on Thursday with the first Test against England set to take place in Perth on July 2.
