Following a strong debut Super 12 season, McMeniman was selected for the Wallabies team for a match against Samoa that year in Sydney, the same game Rocky Elsom debuted in. He went on to be included in the subsequent matches against Italy in Melbourne and France in Brisbane. He was elevated into the starting lineup for end of year tests against England, Ireland and Wales. He was then selected to go on the 2006 spring tour of the UK and Italy, but eight minutes into the first match against club side Ospreys he hyper extended his neck. In 2007 he played two Tri Nations test matches against South Africa and New Zealand, he then was selected in the 2007 Rugby World Cup, where he played pool matches against Japan, Fiji, Canada where he went over twice but both were refused by the referee. He also played in the Quarter Final against England where the Wallabies lost 12-10.
