Australia coach Eddie Jones has unveiled his first ever Wallabies squad during his second tenure as head coach with the team.

The training squad has three uncapped players in Josh Flook, Blake Schoupp and Brad Wilkin. They are joined by uncapped half-back Ryan Lonergan.

Meanwhile, there are no places for Brumbies fly-half Noah Lolesio, Waratahs captain Jake Gordon or Tate McDermott.

“Everyone selected is in my World Cup plans,” Jones said while announcing the squad.

“We’ve decided to only select 33 and the players who aren’t selected will have numerous opportunities over the next six or seven weeks in Super Rugby to press their claims.

“If you are in it, the challenge is to stay in it. If you are not in it, how do you get in it? Players select themselves.”

The squad will assemble for a three-day camp on the Gold Coast.

Australia squad:

Forwards: Allan Alaalatoa, Pone Fa'amausili, Nick Frost, Langi Gleeson, Ned Hanigan, Michael Hooper, Jed Holloway, Lachlan Lonergan, Fraser McReight, Cadeyrn Neville, David Porecki, Tom Robertson, Pete Samu, Blake Schoupp, James Slipper, Darcy Swain, Jordan Uelese, Rob Valetini, Brad Wilkin.

Backs: Ben Donaldson, Josh Flook, Lalakai Foketi, Carter Gordon, Reece Hodge, Len Ikitau, Max Jorgensen, Andrew Kellaway, Ryan Lonergan, Mark Nawaqanitawase, Jordan Petaia, Suliasi Vunivalu, Nic White, Tom Wright.
