Flanker Scott Fardy has emerged from a fierce Wallabies training session in Mendoza needing plenty of stitches after being elbowed and kicked in the head.
It was the Wallabies’ first hitout since arriving in Argentina ahead of Saturday’s Rugby Championship clash with the Pumas.
Sporting a couple of decent cuts that produced plenty of blood, Fardy joked that his headgear would cover most the damage after clashes with locks Dean Mumm and Rob Simmons on Tuesday.
“Mummy kicked me in the head in a pretty benign little drill that we were doing and towards the end of the session, Simmo elbowed me in the head,” said Fardy, who continued training with thick bandages around his head.
“It’s a pretty disappointing session for me, but I’ll be right for Saturday.”
