Aussies likely to lose Higgenbotham for Pretoria Test (latest teams)

The Aussies were struck a blow with the news that skillful and hard-running loose-forward Scott Higgenbotham would probably be ruled out of the Saturday’s test due to injury.

This will be very disappointing for the player, who had to pull out of another test in Pretoria in 2010 just before the match.
