Super Rugby winning Reds winger Digby Ioane will miss his team's match this weekend against the Stormers in Cape Town due to injury.

The Queensland Rugby Union have revealed that Ioane had injured his knee but that the soft tissue injury was not considered serious.

Ioane was included in Robbie Deans' 25-man Australia squad on the weekend to play the British and Irish Lions but is not in doubt for the series.

The Reds winger sustained the injury in the Reds' 27-13 Super Rugby loss to the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein last weekend, will fly back to Brisbane to have scans.

The Wallabies were hit by two more serious injuries on the weekend.

Veteran Brumbies flanker George Smith injured the medial ligament in his left knee and Waratahs hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau broke his right arm.

Both are doubtful for the Lions series.
