Key Wallaby Star Set To Miss Final Test With Ireland Next Week

Huge blow.

Michael Cheika will be unable to call on scrumhalf Will Genia for Australia’s crucial series decider with Ireland in Sydney next week, after he broke his arm in this morning’s second Test defeat.

Genia was forced off in the second-half after a big hit from Ireland prop Cian Healy and will undergo surgery. It’s a huge blow for the Wallabies, with Genia in superb form this season.

He played a key role in the opening Test win, and was clearly missed when he went off this morning.

Ireland meanwhile look set to head into the third and final Test with a clean bill of health, having come out of this morning’s game in Melbourne unscathed.
