Reds wing Dom Shipperley is likely to be named in Australia's starting XV to face the Springboks in Perth on Saturday.
The 21-year-old speedster was on the wing while Kurtley Beale featured at full-back during Monday's Wallabies training session, suggesting they will get the nod for Australia's third Rugby Championship game.
Coach Robbie Deans has been forced to reconsider his back three due to the unavailability of Drew Mitchell, who has an ankle injury.
Beale's return to the run-on team means Adam Ashley-Cooper is set to move to outside centre. Radike Samo is likely to start at number eight ahead of Scott Higginbotham.
The Wallabies have yet to taste success in the Rugby Championship having twice been soundly beaten by the All Blacks but veteran lock Nathan Sharpe believes a few minor modifications should be enough to get them into the 'wins' column.
''The guys are all proud Australians and we want to make sure that the next time we take to the track we get a victory," said Sharpe.
''There's plenty for us to do in terms of getting things right on the field, but minor adjustments will see a big difference.''
''This is very much a new Springboks side with a new coach and all the rest of it,'' added Sharpe.
''The one thing they will bring is that national pride and they will be strong up front and on the back of that they've got very good tactical kicking skills.''
The match will be Sharpe's last in Perth, where he played Super Rugby for the Western Force, but sentiment was not on his mind.
"It will be great to play well and win the game in what will be my last game in Perth," he said.
"This weekend I'm probably a bit over farewells to be honest. I will just be happy with the win."
