Wallabies arrive in Argentina

THE Wallabies have arrived in Argentina and left the pain of defeat against the Springboks behind in South Africa.

But Berrick Barnes will have to grin and bare the agony in the Republic for a while longer.

While his teammates headed to Rosario for the final game of the inaugural Rugby Championship, the fullback remained behind in Johannesburg after suffering a punctured lung in the 31-8 loss.

He will stay there for another week before heading for home like his teammate, Adam Ashley-Cooper.

Ashley-Cooper arrived back in Australia on Monday after being cleared of serious injury when he was knocked out while making a tackle against the Springboks.

Queensland Reds back Luke Morahan and Melbourne Rebels lock Cadeyrn Neville have been called into the injury-hit squad for Sunday's clash against the Pumas.

While the Wallabies are struggling with injuries, Quade Cooper is on the mend following knee surgery.

He tweeted from his hospital bed, "Must b feelin better now ... peanut butter n toast. Op went well."
