Ahead of the England versus  Australia year-end international this weekend, and with seven months to go until The 2013 British & Irish Lions tour to Australia, Wallaby legend George Gregan has picked his starting line-up for the first Test of the 2013 series.

The world's most capped player and former Wallaby captain names two currently injured Australians in his line up - David Pocock at flank and Will Genia starting in George's old position at scrumhalf.

Genia will partner Quade Cooper, who is at flyhalf.

He also selected James Horwill as captain and includes the explosive Sekope Kepu in the front row.
