Brumbies wing Joe Tomane upset

Ruled out: Joe Tomane

The Wallabies have been dealt a double-blow after wingers Joe Tomane and Chris Feauai-Sautia were ruled out of facing New Zealand.

Hamstring problems have sidelined the two players who have both scored tries for Australia in the Wallabies' last two matches, with Feauai-Sautia scoring against South Africa in Cape Town and Tomane impressing against Argentina.

The news of Tomane and Feauai-Sautia's withdrawal comes after Christian Lealiifano was ruled out of the Dunedin clash earlier this week due to an ankle injury.

Peter Betham has been recalled to the Australia squad and joins Nick Cummins as the only specialist wingers in the squad, with Israel Folau and Adam Ashley-Cooper able to provide cover.

Australia are set to name their team on Thursday.
