Brumbies Head Coach Jake White has named Sam Carter in a team that features five Wallabies in the starting line up of the team to play the Force in Perth.

Carter hasn't played for the Brumbies since their last game at Canberra Stadium against the Reds, 26 May.

And while the five capped Wallabies will boost the starting side, the further inclusion of Nic White, Ben Mowen and Jesse Mogg, who were all picked in the Wallabies squad, presents the Force with a tough challenge on Saturday night.

With an injury to Joe Tomane at a Wallabies training session following the Test loss to Scotland, Robbie Coleman will again feature at fullback with Jesse Mogg and Henry Speight on the wings.

Coleman's bench spot has been filled by Cam Crawford, who is in line to make his Super Rugby debut should he feature in the match.

A former Northern Suburbs star who has been performing well for the Gungahlin Eagles throughout 2012, Crawford was a standout for the Brumbies during their match against Wales.

Tongan powerhouse Ita Vaea also returns to the bench in the place of Fotu Auelua.
