Wallabies skipper grounded by injury

Update: 11:02PM Stephen Moore has lasted just five minutes in his first game as Wallabies captain.

Moore badly injured his left knee in the opening minute of play against France at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night and, try as he might, could not stay on.

The 92-Test hooker was treated on the ground after falling awkwardly in making a tackle from the side against a French attacker.

Moore bravely attempted to play on but was a mere passenger as France pressured inside Australia's half before Frederic Michalak slotted a drop goal.

The new skipper, a Trojan in all 15 Tests last year, was replaced by Tatafu Polota-Nau while flanker Michael Hooper took over the captaincy duties.

Moore is now in grave doubt for the rest of the three-Test series with fears he suffered a medial ligament tear.
