Australia flanker David Pocock has been ruled out of his country's Cook Cup clash with England on Saturday due to a calf injury.

The 24-year-old had been expected to return from a long lay-off at the weekend, but scans have revealed that he has aggravated his calf muscle.

Australia will also be without Kirk Douglas for the clash, but they are hopeful that Rob Simmons will be given clearance to play.

The Wallabies have gone two matches without registering a single try for the first time since 1979.
