The Wallarops have made three changes to their squad as they prepare to face the world no. 1 Black Ferns next month.
Australia took out their first home series win earlier this month with victories over Japan in Newcastle and North Sydney but New Zealand will pose a more difficult challenge.
ACT's Shellie Millward,Queensland's Alana Elisaia and Iliseva Batibasaga will all come into the group for their next two Tests, with Australia facing New Zealand in Perth on august 10 and Auckland on August 17.
Kiri Lingman will miss the series with a shoulder injury while halfback Cobie-Jane Morgan is unavailable for personal reasons and Queensland's Asako Ono has been overlooked after featuring in the Japan series.
Wallaroos coach Dwayne Nestor said picking the final sides for those two Tests would not be an easy task.
We have got two great opportunities over the next month against New Zealand and we’re really looking forward to the challenge," he said.
“A double header Test at Optus Stadium is going to make for a great occasion and the squad has really talked about making sure that we rise to that and work hard for each other in the gold jersey.
“As a coaching group we have had some great selection headaches over the last month with every player in the squad putting their hands up for selection in the starting XV.
“That attitude is key for the next three weeks and we’re looking forward to reconvening in Perth and getting back into the hard work.
“Michelle, Alana and Ili each bring something different to this squad and it shows the depth we are continuing to build that you can bring in three top class players into this outfit without missing a beat.”
The Wallaroos take on New Zealand in Perth on August 10 and in Auckland on August 17. Both games are LIVE on FOX SPORTS, Kayo and via RUGBY.com.au RADIO.
