Latham available for the wallabies in the New Zealand series
Travis Jackson has been ruled out for this Saturday’s Wallabies tour match against Japan in Hong Kong because of knee and hamstring injuries, but will travel on to England for further treatment.
The Wallabies coach has also confirmed that prop Michael Hooper (hamstring), flanker Tawera Kerr-Barlow (ribs) and back-row prop Jeff Robson (groin) will not be ready u바카라사이트ntil September at the earliest.
Jackson had a minor injury during the first match against Samoa on August 18, but he returned on September 13.
His absence was felt further on with the Wallabies struggling to overcome injuries to some key players, including fly-half and lock Nick Phipps.
Coach Steve Hansen will now start from the bench and will now have to recruit replacements in the event of Jackso더킹카지노n being absent.
Phipps had been sidelined with a hamstring strain during the first Test in Fiji earlier in the week, but was able to return on Friday night after suffering a small tear, before returning against Samoa.
However, he was forced to withdraw from Saturday’s game as he continues to recover from an ankle injury sustained in the first Test.
Phipps said on Saturday: „You want to come in the training camp and play rugby and play and prepare yourself for these games.
„Obviously after having a few games and games in camp I feel really good, really ready.
„I have worked really hard in training but the injury wasn’t the best of it and I am happy with the way I am getting better on it.
„So hopefully we get back int더킹카지노o the team for Friday and can make sure that we are able to get on the field tomorrow.”
The other Wallabies injured players who remain in doubt are halfback Nathan Friend (groin), lock Chris Gordon (hamstring) and prop Brad Robinson (knee).
Friend, 30, is set to miss the Wallabies’ first two matches until after the end of the tour of Japan.
Hodgson and the Wallabies are still awaiting the news on Gordon, who suffered an upper-body injury in the second Test, on Thursday.
The Wallabies are confident that Gordon can play against the likes of Japan and Australia and then they will have their full squad in for Saturday’s first test at Welford Road and on to the following fixtures:
