Comeback match: Pat McCabe lines up for the ACT XV

Wallaby back Pat McCabe will start at full-back for the ACT XV in his first game of rugby since Australia's loss to France in November last year.

McCabe returns to action after a fractured neck kept him sidelined for three months.

He is one of 12 contracted Brumbies players picked for the Round Two clash of the Pacific Rugby Cup in Tuggeranong.

The ACT XV opened the competition with a big score against Samoa A last Friday and will be looking for more of the same.

ACT XV: 15 Pat McCabe, 14 Tom Cox, 13 Jordan Rapana, 12 Rodney Iona, 11 Stephan Van Der Walt, 10 Zack Holmes, 9 Mark Swanepoel, 8 Tim Cree, 7 Colby Faingaa (c), 6 Jordan Smiler, 5 Leon Power, 4 Etienne Oosthuizen, 3 Ruan Smith, 2 Robbie Abel, 1 Ruaidhri Murphy.
Replacements: 16 Josh Mann-Rea, 17 Ray Dobson, 18 Les Makin, 19 Gareth Clouston, 20 Ben McGee, 21 Beau Mokotupu, 22 Sam Windsor, 23 Andrew Barrell.
