The Wallabies’ loss to Ireland has ended in carnage with six injured players sent home from the spring tour, missing their final Test against Wales.
Wallabies send six injured players home
Taniela Tupou is returning to Australia for further scans on his suspected ruptured Achilles tendon, among six Wallabies players departing before their final Test against Wales.
With a minimum nine-month recovery from surgery, confirmation of the injury would put Tupou’s participation at next year’s World Cup in France in grave doubt in a massive blow to Australia’s chances of success.
The hulking prop was one of five players forced off during their 13-10 loss to world No.1 Ireland in Dublin.
Untouched, he fell to the ground clutching his leg as he attempted to cart the ball up and was stretchered off.
