Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has shut the media out of the team's final training session on the Sunshine Coast before he makes cuts to his 39-man training squad.

It's the first sign of mind games from Cheika and means his former teammate at Sydney club Randwick, England coach Eddie Jones, will be kept guessing before the first Test at Suncorp Stadium on June 11.

Cheika will trim nine players from his squad on Friday and hints there will be a number of bolters in the mix, including Melbourne Rebels rookie Reece Hodge.
