Digby Ioane: Doubtful with a knee injury

Australia have a fitness doubt over winger Digby Ioane ahead of Saturday's final Bledisloe Cup clash against New Zealand in Brisbane.

The 27-year-old flyer is still nursing a knee injury following the Wallabies' 25-19 win over Argentina in Rosario earlier this month.

"We're waiting to hear on Digby and then we'll go from there once it comes clear," said coach Robbie Deans.

Prop Sekope Kepu (knee), No 8 Wycliff Palu (shoulder), and winger Drew Mitchell (ankle) have all been cleared to join the 30-man squad after recovering from injuries.

Utility back Adam Ashley-Cooper will also be available after missing the victory over the Pumas due to concussion.

The All Blacks are on a 16-match winning run, two short of the record held by Lithuania, and beat the Wallabies home and away en route to claiming the inaugural Rugby Championship title last month.
