"So going into tomorrow, I'm pumped to think they'll be supporting gold whatever colour jersey they are wearing."

Hooper had a special word for Western Force outside back Dane Haylett-Petty, who will miss Saturday's test after being ruled out for the season by a torn bicep.

"This is one he really wanted to play, and the bloke, he's been an absolute revelation over the past 16, 18 months," he said.

"So, to miss out on this one that's really close to his heart, I'm feeling for Dane, but it's these little things that'll make him come back so strong."

The Australia captain echoed coach Michael Cheika when he suggested a fine display by the Wallabies would be a boon to fans all over the country.

"We represent Australia and we have the control to help people's moods," Hooper said.

"Wake up on a Sunday morning just stoked to be Australian. And we're fully aware of that.

"We want to be a team that's consistently improving and we've done that this year. We haven't reached our goals yet and tomorrow's another opportunity to play a really good side in good form."
