The Dragons forward's left hand blew up noticeably after the game but he played down any concerns about the injury. Late-tour replacement Craig Wing, who played strongly despite a two-day preparation, was also nursing a bruised sternum but like Ryles is confident of being available for selection for Australia's Tri Nations Test with Great Britain on Saturday which will decide the make-up of the finals.
All eyes will be on Trent Barrett who is in line to play five-eighth if he recovers from a foot injury. The Kangaroos head back to Manchester to prepare for Saturday's final pool game.
