Tom Robertson Wallabies injury blow: Rugby World Cup in doubt


WALLABIES prop Tom Robertson’s World Cup hopes are in jeopardy after suffering a potentially serious knee injury in Argentina.

Robertson went down early on Friday morning (AEST) as the team went through their paces at the San Isidro rugby club in Buenos Aires — their last field session before heading to Salta to take on Los Pumas.

The 24-year-old was not picked for the Rugby Championship clash — which Australia must win to avoid finishing bottom for the first time — but is viewed as the next cab off the rank in terms of Test props.

If the injury is as bad as is feared, Robertson won’t be adding to his 24 international caps anytime soon.
