Ioane blow for Wallabies

Digby Ioane will miss Australia’s final Bledisloe Cup match against the All Blacks due to a knee injury.

The Wallabies winger picked up the injury when Australia beat Argentina in Rosario.

Ioane was fully assessed on Monday, and he failed the fitness test. Adam Ashley-Cooper could start on the left wing, while Dom Shipperley and even the returning Drew Mitchell are also options for coach Robbie Deans.

Another win for the All Blacks would see them extending their streak to 17 consecutive victories.
