Sharpe and Genia back for Wallabies

6:30 am on 21 July 2010

Lock Nathan Sharpe and halfback Will Genia have recovered from injuries and will start in Australia's Tri-Nations Test against South Africa in Brisbane on Saturday night.

Genia's recovered from a fractured hand, which he suffered in last month's one-point loss to England in Sydney, while Sharpe is over the back injury which kept him out of Australia's last Test, a 22-15 victory over Ireland.

Back too is regular prop Benn Robinson while coach Robbie Deans has switched Adam Ashley-Cooper to fullback with James O'Conner coming onto the wing.
