WALLABIES HALFBACK Will Genia is in doubt for tomorrow night’s Tri Nations decider against the All Blacks in Brisbane following his second serious training mishap in three days.
The pint-sized No 9 collided heavily with lock Rob Simmons at Wallabies training yesterday.
Genia headed to the sideline to be attended to by team doctor Warren MacDonald while Simmons continued training. A short time later he went into the team dressing room with MacDonald.
A team spokesperson said that the management was confident Genia had not suffered any serious injury and would be fit to play at Suncorp Stadium against the All Blacks.
However, a decision would not be made until later today.
Earlier in the week, he received six stiches after colliding with No 8 Radike Samo at training. He had no memory of the contact while he was being attended to by Wallabies medical staff.« Back to Articles
