Keo.co.za brings you news from the Wallabies camp.
Gits confirms Wallabies exit - Matt Giteau confirmed that he will not feature in the Wallabies’ 30-man World Cup squad via Twitter.
Media reports from Down Under say head coach Robbie Deans passed on the bad news the 92-Test veteran on Wednesday, to which Giteau responded on Twitter: ‘Thank u ballboys, thank u linesman! That’s it…’ and ‘Really wanna thank everyone for the support! Was a huge honour to get the chance to represent my country as often as I did #veryprivileged’
Giteau was dropped from the Wallabies squad ahead of the Tri-Nations and last played in the shock 32-23 defeat to Samoa in July. He will head to France in November as he signed a two-year deal with Top 14 club Toulon.
Deans will name his World Cup squad on Thursday.
