Aussies opt for continuity
Australia have kept faith with the team that defeated South Africa
Australia have named an unchanged team for Saturday's World Cup final against France in Cardiff.
Fly-half Stephen Larkham, who picked up a knee injury during the South Africa game, has also been declared fit.
France, who are set to name their starting line-up on Thursday morning, are currently nursing a number of injury worries.
Fullback Xavier Garbajosa has a sore right ankle, number eight Christophe Juillet is suffering from a sprained left knee and flanker Marc Lievremont has damaged a muscle on his right thigh.
French team doctor Thierry Hermerel said: "The players will undergo further checks later on Teusday but they are responding well to treatment and we are not too concerned."
