Dylan Pietsch, who narrowly missed the Wallabies Rugby World Cup squad will be joined by Joey Walton in the backline (pending on his fitness).
“It is a quality squad with a good mix of experience and youth throughout," Gilmore said.
“This is a valuable opportunity for these players, playing on the doorstep of the Rugby World Cup, just days before it kicks off – however the most important thing for us will be to play well together as a team.
“The Rugby World Cup is a long tournament, and history suggests you rarely finish with the same squad that you begin with.
“The players are aware of the possibility that the Wallabies may need an injury replacement, and this is an opportunity for them to put themselves in the picture.
“We are excited to be playing a World Cup team in Portugal, and we expect a strong performance from our team.”
