Winger James O'Connor will take over the goalkicking duties after inside centre Matt Giteau decided this week to relinquish them.
It was O'Connor's last-minute try and conversion that gave Australia their 26-24 win over New Zealand last Saturday, ending a 10-match losing streak against the All Blacks.
