Injury blow for Ioane

Australia winger Digby Ioane has been ruled out of Saturday's World Cup clash with Ireland because of a fractured thumb.

Ioane sustained the injury during Sunday's 32-6 Pool C win over Italy after accidentally coming into contact with the boot of Mirco Bergamasco.

The 26-year-old will be operated on and will remain with the Wallabies in New Zealand with a view to playing later in the tournament.
