Melbourne - Australia winger Peter Hynes has aggravated a knee injury and is out of the Wallabies squad for the Tri-Nations indefinitely, local media reported on Monday.

Hynes, who was a strong candidate to start against the Springboks in the Wallabies' Tri-Nations opener in Brisbane on July 24, had re-injured the knee at training, the Australian newspaper said.

Hynes joins Digby Ioane on the sidelines, the Reds winger targeting the Wallabies' second Tri-Nations Test against New Zealand to return from a shoulder injury. Hynes's injury opens the door for the Waratahs winger Drew Mitchell to make a return after he was dumped from the squad following the June Tests.

Mitchell, along with the Force fullback Cameron Shepherd and winger Nick Cummins, will join the Tri-Nations squad for a training camp in Sydney this week.
