Deans sticks with winning team
London - Australia kept faith with the side that beat New Zealand last weekend for Saturday's test against Wales at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
It was the first time the Wallabies have been able to duplicate their side in back-to-back tests since their final 2009 Tri-Nations match against the All Blacks.
"Continuity's good but it's only good if you make it work," coach Robbie Deans said in a statement on Thursday.
"By having consistent faces you are able to push on rather than continually revisiting elements that need to be covered because of a lack of history."
Winger James O'Connor will take over the goalkicking duties after inside centre Matt Giteau decided this week to relinquish them.
It was O'Connor's last-minute try and conversion that gave Australia their 26-24 win over New Zealand last Saturday, ending a 10-match losing streak against the All Blacks.
