Brisbane - Wallaby wing Digby Ioane has been ruled out of the Bledisloe Cup Test against Rugby World Cup champions New Zealand on Saturday in another injury blow for Australia.

Ioane, who scored the match-winning try in Australia's 25-19 away win over Argentina, was ruled out of the New Zealand match with an injured right knee, but is expected to recover in time for the Wallabies' European tour next month.

Australia have lost both previous Tests to New Zealand this season. The All Blacks, who are one win short of their record 17 consecutive Test victories, haven't lost a Test in 14 months.

Australia have used 38 players in Test matches this year due to a spate of injuries.
