Carter Gordon ruled out of Wallabies' clash with Portugal
The playmaker has come under fire following a series of underwhelming performances in Wallaby gold. Gordon failed to shine in five consecutive starts in the No. 10 jersey before being dropped last week.
But the absence of Gordon leaves the Wallabies in a spot of bother. With Donaldson the only proven flyhalf in the squad, there appears to be no cover for the position.
At just 22 years of age, coach Eddie Jones initially picked Gordon as the only flyhalf in the Wallabies’ 33-man World Cup squad. It was a headline-grabbing risk with Jones looking past the likes of Quade Cooper and Bernard Foley.
