Giteau, who was injured during last weekend's 49-3 victory over Fiji, has been replaced by New South Wales Waratahs playmaker Berrick Barnes.

Barnes co-captained the Australian Barbarians in their 28-28 draw with England on Tuesday.

Australia had already been forced into several front row changes for this weekend's clash with England after injuries to Benn Robinson and Ben Alexander.
