Qantas Wallabies wingers Joe Tomane and Chris Feauai-Sautia have been ruled out of Saturday’s third Bledisloe Cup Test against the All Blacks due to injury.
 
Tomane and Feauai-Sautia attempted to overcome hamstring awareness issues during the past two days of training but following further assessment have today been ruled out by medical staff.
 
The decision ensures the pair will avoid the additional risk of aggravating their injuries in the lead-up to the Spring Tour and will now spend the upcoming week in rehab.
 
Both players will re-join the squad next week and travel with the Qantas Wallabies to England on Friday 25 October in preparation for their opening match of a five-game Spring Tour.
 
NSW Waratahs winger Peter Betham has been added to the squad for the upcoming Test and will be part of the 24-man playing group which travels to Dunedin on Wednesday ahead of Saturday’s match in New Zealand.

Bledisloe 3 will be broadcast live on Foxsports 2 and Network 10 around Australia at 5.30pm (AEDT) this Saturday, October 19th. So get behind the Men of Gold!
