Wallaby rookie Marika Koroibete will get his first chance in the Green & Gold this week.

The former rugby league star has been on tour with the Wallabies to gain experience in  the 15 man game as quickly as possible and according to coach Michael Cheika (pictured), he’s already way ahead of schedule.

The Wallabies take on a French Barbarians selection in Bordeaux on Thursday and Cheika says he’s excited to see Koroibete take his first major step for his new code.
