Wallabies warhorse tipped for the axe

6:33 am on 21 May 2009

The Australian rugby media is confidently tipping warhorse flanker Phil Waugh to be a controversial axing when a 30-man Wallabies squad is announced today for the start of the international season.

They're saying Waugh, a former test captain, will become the highest profile omission from coach Robbie Deans' extended squad, despite the inspirational NSW Waratahs captain only recently re-signing with the Australian Rugby Union through to the 2011 World Cup.
