Brisbane - Wallabies scrumhalf Will Genia is expected to play in the Tri-Nations series decider against New Zealand despite needing six stitches in his head after a training ground collision with No 8 Radike Samo.
Genia was unable to finish the session on Tuesday after being cut open by Samo's elbow.
The pair formed an impressive combination during the Reds' Super 15 winning campaign. It was their first practice together since Samo was recalled to the Australian starting lineup for the first time since 2004.
Australia coach Robbie Deans said Genia would be fit for Saturday, when Australia is aiming for its first Tri-Nations title since 2001. It will be the last Test before the World Cup kicks off September 9 in New Zealand.
