Code-switching Melbourne Storm winger Marika Koroibete is set to be fast-tracked into the Wallabies squad for their Europe grand slam tour in November.

Having signed with the Melbourne Rebels for next year's Super Rugby season, Koroibete has been asked to join the Wallabies on their five-Test, seven-match tour starting early November.

Preparing to play in the NRL finals, the Fiji-born flyer offers much-needed power and pace for a Wallabies side currently lacking X-factor on the wings and the tour would speed up his transition to rugby union.
