The Wallabies injury woes have continued with the news that hooker Stephen Moore and utility back James O'Connor's return to fitness has been postponed.

Moore had been bracketed with Saia Fainga'a on the bench for the Test match against Argentina this weekend, but had to withdraw from the match-day squad after training on Tuesday as coach Robbie Deans is not willing

A return date for the injured O'Connor has also been put back and he will not now tour South Africa and Argentina with the team as originally planned.

The Melbourne Rebels flyhalf joined the Wallabies for training this week on the Gold Coast to ascertain the status of his rehabilitation but it was decided that he is not quite ready to be considered for the trip.

He will remain in Australia with a view to preparing for the upcoming year-end tour.
