Dean Mumm will lead his country for the first time, while six others could potentially play their maiden matches at senior level for Australia, after all being named in the Qantas Wallabies side to play Gloucester Rugby tomorrow night.
Mumm, 25, leads a run on combination which will see Brumbies inside centre Tyrone Smith, NSW Waratahs fullback Kurtley Beale, NSW Waratahs lock Dave Dennis and Brumbies tighthead prop Salesi Ma'afu all play their first matches for the Wallabies.
This quartet could be joined in the first timers club by Queensland Reds halfback Richard Kingi and Brumbies flyhalf Matt Toomua, if this year's Australia Under-20 halfback and flyhalf pairing are both called on from the bench during the non-cap match.
Flankers Matt Hodgson, unsighted since being injured in June's season opener against the Barbarians, and Mitchell Chapman, who appeared in then Australian A colours during the 2006 Spring Tour, are also notable inclusions.
The announcement of today's line-up means that all 34 players in the Qantas Wallabies touring party will have received match involvement at the conclusion of the first two matches of the seven-match Spring tour.
And while the Gloucester fixture follows hard on the heels of last weekend's final Bledisloe Cup Test match of the year in Tokyo, the Australian starting XV that will take the field for the midweek tour match still features nine players with Test experience and a combined total of 136 Test caps.
Centre Ryan Cross is the only player required to back up in the run on XV after having started against the All Blacks in Tokyo last weekend.
Qantas Wallabies coach Robbie Deans says this situation was necessitated by the injuries which disrupted the squad in the lead-up to last week's Test match, forcing midfield backs Berrick Barnes and Rob Horne to return home.
"We had intended to avoid backing anyone up in the midweek fixture who had started against the All Blacks, but our injury circumstance in the midfield meant that Ryan was required to start," Deans says.
"We did look at starting Matt Toomua, but as he only joined the squad on Sunday when we arrived in London, and would only have the benefit of one day of preparation with the team, we felt that backing up Ryan was the better option. He got through the game last Saturday well and indicated to me straight after the Test match that he was keen to play."
Five members of the bench from last weekend's Test are included among the run on group, while four of tomorrow night's reserves were also involved in Tokyo.
The Qantas Wallabies team to play Gloucester at the Kingsholm Ground, Gloucester, on 3 November, 7.45pm kick off (6.45am, 4 November, AEST), is:
15. Kurtley Beale (NSW Waratahs)
14. Lachie Turner (NSW Waratahs)

Ben Vellacott was one of the standout performers in last week's pool stages and, ahead of Friday evening's Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Finals, told GRTV that he and his team mates will just try and play their own game once again.
Gloucester Rugby number eight Ben Morgan was today named in England's squad for Rugby World Cup 2015, a reward for eight months of hard work recuperating from a serious injury suffered back in January. Ben was one of a number of players who spoke at a press conference following the squad announcement.
