Injured winger Ioane in doubt for 1st Lions test

Australia winger Digby Ioane is in doubt for the first test against the British and Irish Lions next month after having a minor knee operation on Wednesday.
Ioane had arthroscopic surgery to work on cartilage in his left knee after returning early from the Queensland Reds two-match Super Rugby tour to South Africa.
The Reds said Ioane will miss two Super Rugby games, and the Wallabies reported on Twitter that the blockbusting winger was "touch and go" to be fit for the June 22 first test in Brisbane.
Ioane was included in Australia's preliminary 25-man squad to go into camp June 2 for the three-test Lions series. Six more players will be added to the squad.
