Wallabies coach Dave Rennie wants Rugby Australia to allow him four overseas-based players in his squad due to injuries in his second row.

Currently Rennie is only allowed three overseas-base players in his squad under the Giteau Law.

He has currently Kerevi, Cooper and Koroibete under this law in his squad to tour Argentina next month.

“The issue from a second row point of view is we’ve lost a number of guys for an extended period,” Rennie said on Thursday.

“Izack (Rodda) and Cadeyrn Neville are gone for an extended period and a guy who we brought in to give us a bit cover there, Ned Hanigan, went under the knife last week.

“We’re a little bit thin in the second row and we’re probably only one injury away from a fair bit of pressure there.

“We need to go back to the [RA] board and have a chat around where things are at.

“Maybe there are only three available anyway when it comes to the rest of the Rugby Championship, but we’ll assess things once we’re back from Argentina.”

We will have to see if Australian Rugby will allow Rennie to get that extra player.
