Bowman stays behind as Wallabies depart
September 21, 1999
The Wallabies left Brisbane for Dublin on Monday without lock Tom Bowman, called into the squad as a late replacement for the injured Brett Robinson.
There are now concerns over Bowman's injured left shin and his departure has been delayed as a precaution.
Bowman received 18 stitches to the shin after a training injury last Saturday. However, Wallaby team doctor John Best said, " Tom's leg has swollen slightly so we thought it best to delay his departure by a couple of days. I'd expect that he will be fit to travel by Friday or Saturday."
