While there may have been more shock that Michael Cheika and his fellow selectors did not stay loyal to Tatafu Polota-Nau, picking three hookers is a change-up to what occurred ahead of the World Cup. Instead of taking three halfbacks, the Wallabies have opted for three hookers instead and it is understood the reason is because of the concussion protocols implemented by World Rugby.
Selectors were concerned that if a hooker got concussed there would be potential drama given the Wallabies have two six-day turnarounds during their pool stages.
Usually the stand-down period for concussions is seven days and that could have left the men in gold without a specialist hooker if either of Latu or Faingaa picked up a head knock. Credit: AP. Teams at the World Cup are allowed to make changes to their squad but any player who leaves is not allowed to return. That would mean if Latu was concussed in the second match against Wales on a Sunday, he would almost certainly be rubbed out of the following match on Saturday against Uruguay.
In James Hanson was an unofficial third hooker and was not in the main squad but was close enough in the UK that he could be called upon if need be.
