Sydney - Wing Henry Speight has been granted compassionate leave from the Wallabies squad for this month's Rugby Championship and has been replaced by Nick Cummins, the Australian Rugby Union said on Sunday.

Speight has been allowed to leave the Wallabies' programme to return home to Fiji following the death of his grandfather.

He will remain out of the Wallabies squad until the squad returns from Argentina later this month, the ARU said.

The Wallabies will train on Queensland's Sunshine Coast this week ahead of the Rugby Championship opener against South Africa in Brisbane on July 18.
