The Junior Wallabies have named a full-strength side to face New Zealand, in a must-win World Rugby U20s clash.
Reds trio Hamish Stewart, Harry Hockings and Jordan Petaia will all slot straight into the starting side, after arriving in France to replace injured trio Len Ikitau, Trevor Hosea and James Ramm.
Prop Lawrence Tominiko will also be missing from the side, suspended for a dangerous tackle against Japan.
Tate McDermott has retained the starting halfback spot over Ryan Lonergan, after making an impact in their win against Japan last Sunday.
The Aussies went down to New Zealand in the Oceania U20s in April, 43-28, and Gilmore said they had taken strides since that match.
"It’s been – Oceania gave us a bit of the line in the sand to see where we’re at," he said.
"Leading into the World Cup, we hadn’t played together as a group for a while, so they were a bit rusty, but certainly you can see the growth from the Wales to the Japan game."
The Junior Wallabies take on New Zealand on Thursday June 7 9pm local, Friday June 8 5am AEST, LIVE on FOX SPORTS.
