Casualty Ward: Walker, Scott out of World Cup 9s; Fisher-Harris tears pec

Cody Walker and Curtis Scott are out of Australia's team to contest the World Cup 9s.

The NRL on Saturday said Walker pulled out of the team due to personal reasons, while Scott was forced out after suffering an ankle injury while playing for the Prime Minister's XIII in Fiji on Friday night.

Manly captain Daly Cherry-Evans and Rabbitohs outside back Campbell Graham are the new players in Australia's squad.

Penrith's James Fisher-Harris has been ruled out of New Zealand's end-of-season fixtures after tearing a pectoral muscle at training this week.

The Panthers lock will undergo surgery which will sideline him for the next four months, including the World Cup 9s and the Tests against Great Britain.

Sydney Roosters second-rower Mitchell Aubusson has been cleared of a serious knee injury and is expected to be fit for the start of the 2020 season.

Aubusson left the field after 13 minutes of Sunday night's 14-8 grand final defeat of Canberra after injuring his left knee and underwent scans on Tuesday.

The Roosters report that the 32-year-old sustained a moderate medial ligament injury and will undergo a rehabilitation program during the off-season.

Raiders prop Josh Papalii is in doubt for the Kangaroos' upcoming Tests against New Zealand and Tonga due to a pectoral injury suffered in the grand final loss to the Roosters.

Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga said Papalii would be assessed later in the week with Storm forward Dale Finucane on standby to replace him in the national team.
