Wallabies add prop and wing

2012-09-01 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Waratahs prop Paddy Ryan and Western Force wing Nick Cummins were yesterday added to the Wallabies training group that will assemble in Perth tomorrow ahead of the resumption of the Rugby Championship.

The pair have both been involved with the Wallabies this year, although Ryan missed some training time due to injury.

A squad of 31 has been named, with Reds wing Dominic Shipperley and his state colleague, midfield back Ben Tapuai, both coming into the enlarged main group after previously having trained alongside the squad.

The addition of Cummins and Shipperley bolsters the side’s wing resources after the loss this week of experienced wing Drew Mitchell most likely for the season due to a recurring ankle tendon injury.

The Wallabies will name their squad of 22 players for the Perth Test on Tuesday.

The Wallabies face the Springboks at Patterson’s Stadium next Saturday, bidding to defend the Nelson Mandela Challenge Plate, which Australia has held since the epic 41-39 win over South Africa in Bloemfontein in 2010.

Australia have won their last four Tests against South Africa and will set a new record for the most consecutive wins achieved against the Springboks should they triumph in Perth.
