Wallabies hooker Stephen Moore has been ruled out of Saturday’s Test against the Springboks at Loftus.
Moore strained a hamstring and is en route back to Australia. James Hansen has been called up to cover hooker.
Ben Alexander, Liam Gill, James Slipper, Sita Tamani, Nathan Sharpe and Scott Higginbotham all suffered with gastric virus this week but aren’t thought to be in danger of missing the Test.
Australia will delay their team announcement until Thursday afternoon to give them the best chance of recovery.
