Australia have been dealt a further injury blow with winger Dom Shipperley ruled out of next month's European tour with a wrist injury.
The 21-year-old Reds winger will be unavailable for the four-Test tour in November after scans confirmed his injured wrist requires further treatment.
Fellow wingers James O'Connor, Joe Tomane, Lachie Turner, Cooper Vuna, Rod Davies and Luke Morahan are already on the sidelines with Digby Ioane also a doubt for the tour with a knee injury.
