Experienced prop Benn Robinson was overlooked as new coach Ewen McKenzie named eight uncapped players in his inaugural 30-man Wallabies' squad on Friday for this month's Rugby Championship.
Robinson, who played in the recent losing series against the British and Irish Lions and is a veteran of 59 Tests, was the major omission after being a mainstay of the Wallabies' tight five.
"He's very disappointed. I was actually pleased about that. If he wasn't disappointed, I'd be disappointed," McKenzie said of Robinson, one of Australia's most-capped front-rowers.
