Quade Cooper has dislodged Bernard Foley and will start as Wallabies five-eighth against the All Blacks on Saturday after a Bledisloe Cup selection shake-up from coach Michael Cheika.

Cooper's inclusion is one of five changes made by Cheika following their disastrous first Test 42-8 defeat to the All Blacks, and arguably the most intriguing.

Wallabies: Israel Folau, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Samu Kerevi, Bernard Foley, Dane Haylett-Petty, Quade Cooper, Will Genia, David Pocock, Michael Hooper, Scott Fardy, Adam Coleman, Kane Douglas, Sekope Kepu, Stephen Moore (c), Scott Sio. Reserves: Tatafu Polota-Nau, James Slipper, Allan Ala'alatoa, Dean Mumm, Will Skelton, Tevita Kuridrani, Reece Hodge, Nick Phipps.
