Australia will have to do without the services of flanker Jack Dempsey’s in the remaining 2017 fixtures, this is after the loose forward suffered a serious leg injury during their clash against the Barbarians.
It is believed that the 23 year old flanker has torn his hamstring off the bone. Australian head coach Michael Cheika revealed that Dempsey’s injury is serious and will keep him out of the remaining tours but he never gave specifics concerning the injury.
“I don’t think that would be an accurate assumption, It’s so fresh.Whatever it is, it’s serious. When I say serious, there’s no doubt he’ll be out of the tour, the coach told rugby.com.au.
“He’s in a fair bit of pain in there too, so let’s just see what happens with it. It’s unfortunate his season’s over.He’s a young fella who’s coming up too through the ranks. He’s not going to forget how to play footy between now and next year. He’ll have a chance to have a bigger preseason now and get himself right, the coach added.
Wallabies will face England, Wales and Scotland in the upcoming clashes.
