Wallabies wing Digby Ioane has revealed that he has overcome a knee injury and is ready to take on the British and Irish Lions on Saturday.

Ioane participated in full training sessions on Friday and Monday and reported on Tuesday that, "It's feeling good. I'll be ready for this weekend."

The 27-year-old Reds flyer had minor surgery to clean up cartilage in his left knee last month and had been in doubt for the first Test in Brisbane, but said "Now I'm right to go. All I have to do is just get picked."

Australia coach Robbie Deans is set to announce his 23-man squad for the first test on Thursday, hours after the Lions line-up is revealed.

The Lions have won all five of their warm-up matches on tour so far.
