Genia trains with Wallabies

6:37 pm on 4 August 2010

Star halfback Will Genia has provided some much-needed good news for the Wallabies, getting through their first training session in Christchurch.

Genia has been in doubt for Saturday's Tri-Nations and Bledisloe Cup Test against the All Blacks after picking up a knee injury in the 49-28 loss to the New Zealanders in Melbourne last Saturday.

Winger Cameron Shepherd - who was drafted into the squad as backline cover for injured centre Rob Horne - missed training with the flu.

The Wallabies will not name their team until tomorrow.
