Petaia and Arnold out of Italy clash

Winger Jordan Petaia has been ruled out of Saturday’s clash with Italy in Padua, with hamstring soreness cruelling what would have been a Test debut.

The 18-year old was due to become the third-youngest player to ever represent Australia but pulled up sore at training.

Australian medical staff have opted not to rush the rehabilitation and the winger is expected to be fit in time for the England clash at Twickenham next week.

Petaia will be replaced in the starting side by Marika Koroibete with Michael Cheika preferring not to tinker with the backs on the bench.

There has been one forced change to the reserves though with Rory Arnold also succumbing to injury after suffering a fractured eye socket at training on Thursday. Arnold has been replaced in matchday 23 by veteran Rob Simmons.

The Wallabies Spring Tour Test Matches will be live, free and in HD on SBS, as well as streamed live online via SBS On Demand.

The Spring Tour will also be screened LIVE on beIN Sports, available to all FOX Sports subscribers and will be available to stream via Foxtel Go.
