Wallabies Rugby World Cup squad member Max Jorgensen has been ruled out of the remainder of the tournament with a fractured fibula.
Jorgensen (19), the youngest member of Eddie Jones’ squad, suffered the injury during training this morning (Wednesday) and was sent immediately for scans which confirmed the fracture.
Wallabies head coach Eddie Jones said: “Firstly we’re all feeling for Max. He’s a good young man who has a massive future ahead of him in the gold jersey.”
“He’s worked really hard to come back from a serious knee injury and was training exceptionally well to put his hand up for selection.
“We wish him a speedy and successful recovery and look forward to seeing him out on the field as soon as possible.”
A medical replacement will be named in due course.
