Cardiff Blues prop Gethin Jenkins will lead Wales out against Australia.
Gethin Jenkins will captain a Wales side which shows three changes, plus one positional, to the starting line-up for the Rugby World Cup Bronze Final with Australia at Eden Park on Friday night.

Cardiff Blues lock Bradley Davies starts in place of another Osprey, lock Alun Wyn Jones, with Jones moving to the bench.
Ryan Jones joins the back row in place of squad captain Sam Warburton, who is suspended, with Toby Faletau shifting from No8 to open-side flanker to accommodate the Ospreys flanker and fill the berth vacated by Warburton.
On the bench prop Ryan Bevington (Ospreys) provides front row cover in place of James and Sales Sharks back row Andy Powell is also added due to the promotion of Jones.
"We are sticking with the majority of the side which has put together a string of performances for us so far in this tournament, the one change which wasn't forced, in the second row, is based on the fact that Alun Wyn ran himself into the ground when we faced 14 men against France last week," said Wales head coach Warren Gatland.
"We face Australia back home at the Millennium Stadium in just over a month's time and we are single-minded in our assertion that we want that home-coming to be a celebration of us achieving the status of one of the top three teams in the world.
"We have come a long way and put together a string of performances that the nation can be proud of so far in New Zealand and we need to ensure that the history books reflect what we know we are capable of - and it is only by beating the Wallabies on Friday night that we feel this will be achieved."
