Cross happy to get another chance

5:57 pm on 10 September 2008

The Wallaby centre Ryan Cross has some sympathy for another League convert Timana Tahu who has been dumped for this weekend's Tri-Nations decider against the All Blacks in Brisbane.

Wallaby coach Robbie Deans has made 5 changes from the side that was thumped 53-8 by the Boks in their last match in Johannesburg.

Cross, who switched codes 2 years ago, believes this Saturday night's Suncorp clash, will be the biggest moment of his union career.... and says he has mixed feelings about making the starting lineup in place of Tahu, who appears to be struggling to make the transition from the 13-aside game.

Cross will partner captain Stirling Mortlock in the centres.
