Sarah Riordan returns for Wallaroos to face NZ
Centre Sarah Riordan's return from injury is the only change to the Wallaroos as they attempt to improve on their heartening effort against world champions New Zealand.
Riordan missed the 31-11 first Test loss in Sydney after suffering an ankle injury at training but was named on Thursday for Saturday's return Test at Eden Park in Auckland.
Coach Dwayne Nestor wasn't tempted to make other changes after the Wallaroos showed the benefits of increased backing for women's rugby in Australia with a competitive showing at ANZ Stadium last weekend.
"We're really looking forward to this second Test and we know that the Black Ferns are going to lift at home," said Nestor.
"We had a good review of the opportunities we didn't take out there last week and we know we can improve on our performance.
"Sarah's return from injury has been well received by the squad, she's a popular, talented player and will combine well with Atasi Lafai and Samantha Treherne."
The Black Ferns have named an unchanged team as they aim to extend a 16-match winning streak against Australia, who have never beaten their trans-Tasman rivals.
Wallaroos team: Mahalia Murphy, Mhicca Carter, Atasi Lafai, Sarah Riordan, Samantha Treherne, Trilleen Pomare, Cobie-jane Morgan, Grace Hamilton, Georgia O'Neill, Emily Chancellor, Rebecca Clough, Michelle Milward, Evelyn Horomia, Liz Patu (capt), Emily Robinson. Res: Darryl Wickliffe, Melissa Fatu, Hana Ngaha, Alisha Hewett, Kiri Lingman, Fenella Hake, Crystal Maguire, Shanice Parker.
