After scoring two tries during the 63-30 victory over Japan in Yokohama, Kerevi has been retained in the starting XV at centre ahead of Karmichael Hunt.
"I think Samu's a very, very good player and I know he hasn't had it all his way this year so I'm eager to see him fight back and hold a spot in the team," head coach Cheika said.
"A really good thing for us is we've got options around how we can set up because Karmichael can go to full-back or centre, Samu can go 12 or 13, [Reece] Hodge can play pretty much anywhere now, and [Kurtley] Beale can play 12, full-back or fly-half if we need."
Five-eighth Foley and scrum-half Genia have recovered from illness and a calf injury respectively to start at Principality Stadium on Sunday (AEDT), where Beale will play at full-back in the absence of Israel Folau, who is taking a break from the game for the remainder of the year.
Kurtley Beale, Marika Koroibete, Tevita Kuridrani, Samu Kerevi, Reece Hodge, Bernard Foley, Will Genia; Scott Sio, Tatafu Polota-Nau, Sekope Kepu, Rob Simmons, A Coleman, Ned Hanigan, Michael Hooper (c), Sean McMahon.
Replacements: Stephen Moore, Tom Robertson, Allan Alaalatoa, Matt Philip, Ben McCalman, Nick Phipps, Karmichael Hunt, Henry Speight.
