The Wallabies are rolling the dice with their rookies for the opening Test in Wellington on Sunday with new coach Dave Rennie saying it's a team for the future as well as ending the Bledisloe Cup drought.
Three debutants are in Australia's starting line-up in blindside flanker Harry Wilson, winger Filipo Daugunu and outside centre Hunter Paisami, while uncapped playmaker Noah Lolesio is on the bench.
Underlining the huge player turnover, only skipper Michael Hooper, who will play his 100th Test, and winger Marika Koroibete remain from the starting line-up from last year's World Cup quarter-final.
Game-breaking centre Jordan Petaia (hip) and fullback Dane Haylett-Petty (groin) weren't considered, however Rennie said the young Reds trio were were irresistible selections.
"Harry has been a real stand-out - he's a big ball carrier, aggressive defensively and we were keen to have him and Pete Samu on the park because they provide a point of difference," Rennie said on Friday.
"Hunter, with Jordie being unavailable, is an aggressive ball carrier and really destructive defensively and we think that's going to be important.
"Filipo was just outstanding for the Reds - he's a real handful and can beat people in a phone box and is really aggressive defensively.
"We're trying to grow this side, not just for this weekend but for the future.
"They were pretty straight forward decisions to be honest."
While Wilson spent the season at No.8, Rennie thought the speed of Samu could be a "weapon" off the back of scrums.
Rennie said he picked a potent attacking side, but also one that offered steely defence.
"We've put a lot of emphasis around defence though and we know that's going to be really important," Rennie said.
"The teams that have beaten the All Blacks in the past have limited teams to less than 15 or 16 points so that's our challenge."
James O'Connor will have his first start at five-eighth since 2013, while another veteran Matt Toomua will partner 22-year-old Paisami in the centres.
Nic White is the starting halfback with Tom Banks at fullback.
"James got better and better at 10 and I've been really impressed with him as he understands the game inside out and has been demanding of others," Rennie said.
"With Hunter and Filipo on the field we thought it was important we added a bit of experience around them."
Rennie said the line-up had trained together since Sunday and they were as well prepared as they could be in their three weeks together.
"We've done all we can do - we're conscious that we can't feed them with too much because there heads will be spinning.
"We'll grow our game over time. We know it's not going to be perfect."
