Wallabies winger in doubt for Bledisloe Cup test

8:57 am on 15 October 2012

The Wallabies' winger Digby Ioane is in doubt for Saturday's final Bledisloe Cup test against the All Blacks in Brisbane because of a lingering knee problem.

Ioane suffered the injury during the Wallabies' 25-19 win over Argentina in Rosario earlier this month, and Robbie Deans says his chances of playing this weekend will be assessed later today.

But two forwards, Wycliff Palu and Sekope Kepu, and backs Drew Mitchell and Adam Ashley-Cooper have recovered from injuries and rejoined the squad.

The All Blacks' last loss was at the hands of Australia in Brisbane last year.
