New Wallabies captain David Pocock plans to lead by deed rather than word and has already got the seal of approval from one of his predecessors.

Zimbabwean-born Pocock will lead an Australian side containing five uncapped players in the Test against Scotland in Newcastle on Tuesday.

Two New Zealand-born backs, the Queensland Reds’ Mike Harris and the Melbourne Rebels Joe Tomane, will make their debuts at inside centre and wing respectively.
