Moore was forced to pull out of the Wallabies side to face Wales after initially suffering a back strain in training and then been unable to take part in the pre-match warm-up.

However Moore has had an injection in his back and is hoping to take his place in side, especially after being named man-of-the-match at Twickenham in 2008.

"I have had a bit of cortisone in it this morning, and hopefully it will settle down," he said.

"I have had it a couple of times before and it settled down pretty quick with the same sort of treatment."

Tatafu Polota-Nau is being flown over as a precaution having recovered from a long-term ankle problem.
