Injured Oz Duo Set To Miss Out Against Wales

TITLEGOESHERE | Radio Kerry | 96-98FM | Your Voice in The Kingdom

Injury means Australia are likely to be without Israel Folau and Rob Horne for their clash with Wales this Saturday in Twickenham. Michael Hooper is definitely out, the back row has been suspended for one match for a shoulder charge in the win against England last Saturday. England centre Jonathan Joseph sees no reason why head coach Stuart Lancaster and captain Chris Robshaw should lose their roles. Both of them are under pressure following their early World Cup exit. Defeats to Wales and Australia have knocked them out of the tournament before Saturday’s final pool game against Uruguay has been played. Joseph’s a fan of Robshaw’s captaincy [audio_player src=”http://media.radiokerry.ie/mediamanager/embed/audio/46617/medium/”] Sam Burgess has been dropped from England’s match-day squad for their final match against Uruguay. Henry Slade comes into the team to form a centre partnership with Owen Farrell – who’s replaced at fly-half by the recalled George Ford. Eight changes have been made to the starting fifteen for the dead rubber in Manchester, though Chris Robshaw remains captain. It’s been confirmed that Ireland’s women team will play France in a November international at the Twickenham Stoop next month. The game will take place on the 14th. The squad continue preparations this week with an open training session at Belfast Kingspan stadium this Saturday.
