The Wallabies have named an unchanged line up to face Wales in the second Test match on Saturday although tighthead prop Sekope Kepu will face a late fitness test before the match.
Kepu strained a tendon in his forearm during last weekend's 27-19 win over Wales but only reported the injury once he had cooled down following the game having played the full 80 minutes.
"We are hopeful that 'Keps' will be good to go, but we do have a contingency plan in place if we need it," Wallabies coach Robbie Deans says.
"There are five props in the group we have with us in Melbourne so we saw no need in bringing anyone extra in."
The Brumbies' Ben Alexander, who replaced loosehead prop Benn Robinson during the first Test of the Tour but has played the majority of his 38 previous Test matches as a tighthead, has once again been named on the bench.
Deans says the continuity of the selection reflected the level of last weekend's performance, although he acknowledged that the same would not be good enough for the return bout against the Six Nations champions.
"The Welsh will have seen a lot of opportunity in last weekend's Test," Deans says.
"They showed during their Six Nations campaign that they are resilient - twice winning games in the final moments. That trait was apparent again in a 12-minute period in Brisbane when they closed from 6-20 to 19-20, to put themselves in a position to win the game after we had made the better start."
The Welsh camp, who are this week being joined in Melbourne by their injured head coach Warren Gatland, made it clear prior to undertaking this tour that they believed a series win in Australia was within their capabilities.
"That belief won't have been altered by last Saturday night," Deans says.
"If anything, that game - and more particularly the opportunities that they were able to create within in it - will only have hardened their resolve."
