Ireland Vs Australia

Last updated : 12 August 2009 By Paul Jennings
Giovanni Trapattoni has named his team to face Australia in Thomand Park tonight. Sean St Ledger starts as first choice centre half with Richard Dunne following a few great displays for the Irish at the end of the season.

Darron Gibson starts in place of Keith Andrews who must feel slightly irritated that he was replaved ahead of Whelan in midfield. The rest of the team is a settled side, although Trapattoni may make wholesale changes throughout the game to blood new players.
