NSW Waratahs lock Will Skelton and Queensland Reds backrower Jake Schatz will join the Qantas Wallabies squad in Argentina ahead of the team’s final Castrol EDGE Rugby Championship clash in Mendoza on Saturday night.

The duo will join the team in Buenos Aires on Tuesday, and comes following three injuries suffered in Australia’s clash against South Africa in Cape Town yesterday.

Western Force No.8 Ben McCalman will miss the upcoming clash against Argentina with a shoulder injury, and will now return to Australia on Sunday to be assessed further and commence his rehabilitation.

The injury and his selection availability will be re-assessed in the lead-up to the Qantas Wallabies Test against New Zealand in Brisbane on Saturday 18 October.

Queensland Reds lock Rob Simmons and ACT Brumbies centre Matt Toomua also suffered head knocks in the match against South Africa, with a decision on their availability for the Test against Argentina to be made during the week.
