Skipper James Horwill is returning from injury and veteran prop Benn Robinson has been recalled for the first time in the 2013 Rugby Championship to a 28-man squad for Australia's matches in South Africa and Argentina.
Horwill, who missed two tests with a left hamstring strain, will add size and experience to the second row in what should be two forward-oriented matches. Robinson has been recalled as the Wallabies continue to work on the scrum which has been a problem this season.
The Australians ended a four-match losing streak last weekend with a 14-13 win over Argentina in Perth. Home and away losses to the All Blacks and a first loss in 42 years to the Springboks in Brisbane followed a 2-1 series defeat to the British and Irish Lions.
