Wallaby Haylett-Petty to miss rest of year

  Wallaby Haylett-Petty to miss rest of year Wallabies winger Dane Haylett-Petty will be sidelined for about three months with a biceps injury. Dane Haylett-Petty's miserable week has taken another turn for the worse after the Wallabies winger was ruled out for the rest of the year with a biceps injury.Haylett-Petty was left shattered on Tuesday when it was confirmed the Western Force had lost their Supreme Court appeal and been booted out of the Super Rugby competition.

Heart-stopping finishes and inch-perfect escapes, these are the Plays of the Week.

- Marika Koroibete is set to make his Wallabies debut after being named in Australia's squad to face Argentina in the Rugby Championship. There was no recall for former captain Stephen Moore , who missed the Springboks Test after the birth of his third child.

It comes as former captain Stephen Moore was left out of Australia's matchday 23, with coach Michael Cheika opting instead for youngster Jordan Uelese to once again come off the bench.

Dane Haylett-Petty's biceps surgery last week has created a vacant Wallabies wing spot and it is Koroibete that will get his chance off the bench to cap a rapid transition from rugby league to the 15-man code.

Koroibete has played just 13 games of Super Rugby but has been involved in the Wallabies setup since last year's tour of Europe.

Now Koroibete is in line to become just the third player to make their Wallabies debut before Marika Koroibete has been included in the Wallabies squad without playing a Super Rugby match. He didn’t make his debut , with James Hanson preferred as back-up to Stephen Moore . LOSERS.

He replaces another former NRL star in Curtis Rona on the bench, while Henry Speight and Reece Hodge have retained their places as the team's starting wingers.

However, the biggest selection surprise was that of Moore, who has been snubbed for 20-year-old Uelese after the Melbourne Rebels hooker made his Test debut last week against South Africa in Perth. Uelese, who has played just 28 minutes of Super Rugby, was taunted as "fresh meat" by the Springboks pack when he ran on to replace Tatafu Polota-Nau.

On the back of two games that even Moore himself would not rate as his best, the 34-year-old has been left out of the matchday 23 with Polota-Nau and Uelese getting their chance to go toe-to-toe with an Argentina side that prides itself at scrum time.

Cheika has made just one change his starting XV, with Rob Simmons replacing Rory Arnold in the second row.

Simmons came off the bench against the Springboks and now that he is in the starting team, Izack Rodda, who made his debut in Dunedin, gets an opportunity off the pine.
