Genia to lead Wallabies, Horwill rested

7:58 am on 22 September 2011

Will Genia will lead the Wallabies for the first time in tomorrow night's World Cup pool match against the United States in Wellington, with the tournament captain James Horwill given a rest.

The straight shooting halfback was quick to reassure Australian fans they have no reason to lose faith despite the embarrassment of losing to Ireland, and they can still win the World Cup by toning down their attacking instincts.
