SYDNEY, Sept. 17 (Xinhua) -- Injured Wallabies captain James Horwill and veteran prop Benn Robinson have been included in Australia's 28-man squad for their two-match Rugby Championship tour to South Africa and Argentina, local media reported on Tuesday.
The Wallabies meet the Springboks in Cape Town on September 28 and the Pumas in Rosario on October 6.
Horwill has missed the Wallabies' past two Tests because of a hamstring injury and is yet to be cleared to make his return to playing.
Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie believes the experience that Robinson and Horwill bring in will help strengthen the national team.
"The scrums have been inconsistent across all the Tests so far and we are now about to embark on a tough two-game road tour," he said in a statement.
"We want to improve this area of our game and when you combine the Tests played between Ben and James we are bringing in another 99 games of experience up front. That's invaluable when you are playing in hostile environments away from home."
McKenzie says games against South Africa and Argentina are always brutal.
"So you need to give an edge to physicality in your selections," McKenzie said.
"You need to fight fire with fire to some extent and it's pretty clear that we've brought in added size as well as more experience for these next two games."
