The unheralded Brumbie Sam Carter is the big bolter as one of five second-rowers selected in the Wallabies' 32-man squad for next month's three-Test series against France.
Carter's has been called up beside fellow uncapped locks Will Skelton and Luke Jones following the loss of Ireland-bound Kane Douglas, France-based Sitaleki Timani and rising Melbourne Rebel Hugh Pyle to overseas clubs.
The rookie trio will push incumbents James Horwill and Rob Simmons as coach Ewen McKenzie develops his locking stocks before next year's World Cup.
McKenzie has also overlooked France-bound 2013 captain Ben Mowen, but won't name his replacement as skipper until gathering for the opening Test on June 7 in Brisbane.
Wallabies: Backs - Israel Folau, Nick Cummins, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Pat McCabe, Rob Horne, Tevita Kuridrani, Christian Leali'ifano, Matt Toomua, Kurtley Beale, Bernard Foley, Will Genia, Nic White, Nick Phipps.
Forwards - Wycliff Palu, Ben McCalman, Scott Higginbotham, Michael Hooper, Matt Hodgson, Scott Fardy, James Horwill, Rob Simmons, Will Skelton, Luke Jones, Sam Carter, Ben Alexander, Sekope Kepu, James Slipper, Scott Sio, Pek Cowan, Stephen Moore, Tatafu Polota-Nau, Nathan Charles.
