Michael Hooper (Australia) withdrawal against Wales

The Wallabies will not be able to count on their third line and former captain Michael Hooper (124 selections) for the last match of the November tour, Saturday in Cardiff (4:15 p.m.), against Wales. The 31-year-old was showing symptoms of concussion after the Australia lost to Ireland (13-10)last weekend.

The Waratahs player, back in the national team for this tour after taking a break during Super Rugby, started in Dublin last weekend and played the entire match. His absence adds to an already injured list of six players: fullback Andrew Kellaway, center Hunter Paisami, hooker Dave Porecki, prop Taniela Tupou, third line center Rob Valetini and scrum half Nic White .
