Second injury concern for Australians
September 30, 1999
Already faced with the possible loss of prop Patrico Noriega, Australia have a second injury worry with Jason Little taking no part in Wednesday's training session.
The veteran of the 1991 and 1995 World Cups has picked up a back strain that may keep him out of Sunday's game against Romania.
Wallaby coach Rod McQueen was being cautious over Little's chances of making the Belfast game. "There's concern about Jason's back for this game. He has a bit of a sore disc. He'd been training well all week and then it just came about today. The medical staff rested him from training as a precaution."
The Australian's will not lose anything in experience if Little is forced to withdraw. His replacement would be the 45 times capped Joe Roff, scorer of 98 test points.
