    Australia suffered a massive blow as their head coach Michael Cheika has confirmed Wycliff Palu and Will Skelton both will miss the remainder of the Rugby World Cup through injury.

    The pair picked up the injuries in Sunday’s 65-3 victory against Uruguay at Villa Park and now it is confirmed that both were forced out of their respective England 2015 campaigns.

    The news comes just four days before the Wallabies to face England at Twickenham on Saturday in a decisive pool match.

    Cheika also confirmed that Hooker James Hanson and lock Sam Carter both have been called in to the squad as replacements for this weekend’s match against England as they find themselves third in Pool A.
