Australia talisman David Pocock may miss the Test against New Zealand next week with a knee injury.
Pocock will consult with a surgeon on Monday to assess the extent of the damage to the articular cartilage of his knee. It is feared he could be out for a lengthy spell.
Meanwhile No 8 Ben McCalman underwent surgery last evening after fracturing the radius in his forearm. McCalman, who was returning from a nerve injury in his shoulder which had sidelined him for much of the year, is expected to be out of action for a minimum of three months.
