With question marks over the form of many incumbent Wallabies, new forwards coach Simon Raiwalui may as well keep his bags packed before Australia's Test series against Ireland.
Raiwalui has just arrived in Australia from coaching in France and will be playing catch-up to get familiarised with the Wallabies contenders before the series opener against the Six Nations champions in Brisbane on June 9.
Replacing Mario Ledesma in the role, Raiwalui said he'd been trying to keep on top of Super Rugby from France but was looking forward to moving around to analyse Australia's best talent.
"It's going to be a long process for me in the next month getting to know those guys so I will be really looking at this weekend as the first reference point," Raiwalui told AAP.
"I've watched a lot of video and I've seen some good things and some other things to work on but I'll be able to look at things in much more detail now that I'm here."
The biggest concern in the forward pack is who will play hooker, with first-choice Tatafu Polota-Nau based in the UK and rising star Jordan Uelese sidelined with a troublesome arm injury.
While it's believed Polotau-Nau will be rested between the end of his Leicester duties and the Rugby Championship, Raiwalui said he hadn't been told of such plans.
Relegated behind Anaru Rangi at the Melbourne Rebels before the injury, Uelese has nerve damage near his biceps and isn't expected to return until their clash with the Sunwolves in late May, but Raiwaiui said two games could still be enough for him to press his claims.
Reds rookie Brandon Paenga-Amosa and the Waratahs' Damien Fitzpatrick appear next in line.
"There's some big gaps to fill but of the videos I've watched there's some good young hookers through, including Jordan," he said.
"There's some good talent so it's a matter of them putting their hands up and keeping that consistency."
The former Fiji international said he wanted to see more physicality and an improved work-rate from the forwards before selection.
But one positive is the re-emergence of veteran flanker David Pocock after his 12-month sabbatical and Raiwalui hinted there would be room for both he and skipper Michael Hooper in the backrow.
"He's a fantastic player with a wealth of experience and qualities and we're looking forward to having him back," he said.
"The make-up of the backrow still has to be worked out but you're going to have the best players out there."
