A hamstring injury has seen fullback Mike Harris play his last game for the Melbourne Rebels after being ruled out for the remaining outing of the season against the Queensland Reds on Friday night in Brisbane.

The 28-year-old, who joins French club Lyon at the end of the season, was substituted in the seventh minute against the Crusaders in Christchurch on Saturday – prematurely ending a frustrating season of injuries for the back.

Rebels lock Luke Jones has recovered from a concussion while second row partner Lopeti Timani will continue to be monitored for a second-week after suffering a head knock against the Stormers.

Captain Nic Stirzaker and Laurie Weeks both successfully returned from ankle and hamstring injuries, respectively, against the Crusaders.

The Melbourne Rebels injury update following Round 16 v Crusaders :

Lopeti Timani (Concussion): Test

Mike Harris (Hamstring): Season

Kotaro Matsushima (Hamstring): Season

Dan Hawkins (Back): Season
