Moore returns to face USA


Brumbies hooker Stephen Moore was named on the bench for the Wallabies World Cup clash with the USA on Wednesday after missing the game against Ireland with a stomach complaint.

Joining Moore on the bench is Brumbies Inside Centre Pat McCabe, while prop Ben Alexander has been named in the starting side.

The Wallabies will be looking to rebound against the USA after turning in a poor performance against Ireland, going down 15-6 in Auckland last Saturday night.

The Wallabies will face the USA in Wellington, with the match being shown live on Fox Sports or delayed on Channel Nine.
