The Brumbies have suffered a heavy blow as winger Joe Tomane has been ruled out of Super Rugby for between 6 to eight weeks.
Tomane suffered medial ligament damage to right knee in the Brumbies loss to the Crusaders on Sunday.
The winger picked up the injury in the 76th minute of the match after clipping legs with Crusaders flanker Matt Todd as both players competed for a loose ball.
Scans have revealed that Tomane has suffered damage to his medial ligament and will need between six to eight weeks to recover.
Tomane, the Brumbies leading try-scorer this season (six), has already begun rehabilitation with the Brumbies medical team.
Meanwhile, it is a day-to-day recovery for Tomane’s teammate and co-captain Stephen Moore, who suffered a serious cork to his calf muscle in the match against the Crusaders.
Moore left the field in the 42nd minute after picking up the cork in the first half.
He was rested from Brumbies training on Tuesday and will undergo rehabilitation this week in a bid to be fit for Saturday’s match against the Highlanders in Invercargill.
