Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has revealed Rob Simmons was dropped for Saturday's second Test against England - not ruled out through injury.
Simmons sustained a lower back injury during the 39-28 defeat to England last weekend, and it was presumed that was the reason he was not selected for the AAMI Park clash - until Cheika casually dropped the bombshell on Test eve.
"He was available this week. Any player that's left out is not happy, obviously. But that's the challenge for him, to improve and get his spot back like all players who are left out of the team," Cheika said on Friday.
