Injury might see Drew Mitchell given starting spot

WINGER Drew Mitchell (pictured) is set for a starting role for the Wallabies in their Rugby Championship clash against Argentina in Mendoza this weekend.

Western Force cult hero Nick Cummins has been recalled to the 31-man squad for the trip to South America, with Brumbies halfback Nic White also included for the injured Will Genia.

The Reds playmaker will have minor knee surgery this week after suffering bone bruising and minor cartilage damage against the Springboks.

Coach Michael Cheika said he expected Horne and Genia would both be available for selection against the All Blacks in Sydney on August 8.
