Australia's European tour nightmare has continued with star flanker David Pocock and second-rower Kane Douglas both ruled out of the Wallabies' clash with England at Twickenham on Saturday (Sunday AEDT).

Pocock had a calf muscle injury which is expected to see him miss one Test while Douglas has a knee injury.

Standby forward Scott Higginbotham will not be sent to the UK at this stage.

Higginbotham still has one match to serve in his suspension for striking All Blacks captain Richie McCaw but he would be available for the third leg of the tour against Italy in Florence on Saturday (Sunday AEDT) week if required.

Australia were hammered 33-6 in the opening game of the European tour by France in Paris last weekend.
