Australia's Schools and U18s have reshuffled their team to play their second tour match on Wednesday against the Ulster Academy.

The Aussies beat out the Munster U19s last weekend and will be looking to back up in Belfast.

Queensland flyhalf Carter Gordon is among the tweaks for the side, with the chance to prove himself as chief playmaker for the match up.

All eyes will be on powerful flanker Carlo Tizzano after his star turn against Munster, but there will be plenty of new faces looking to impress ahead of the side's first Test this weekend.

Australian Schools coach Andrew Moloney has made four changes to his overall 23 for the clash, with Lachlan Ilias, Vincent Creagh, Luke Reimer and Rory Scott coming into the matchday squad. 

The Australian Schools & U18s team takes on the Ulster Academy, Tuesday December 4, 5:30pm, Wednesday 4:30am AEDT, with match vision available on later on Wednesday.
