The Highlanders have suffered a blow as loosehead prop Brendon Edmonds has been ruled out for the rest of the Super Rugby season due to a knee injury.

Edmonds sustained the injury in the early stages of the Highlanders win against the Force last Friday night.

Following further assessment and scans yesterday it was discovered the ruptured ligaments in his left knee will require reconstructive surgery. He will have the surgery sometime in the next 2-3 weeks.

Highlanders Head Coach Jamie Joseph commented “this is really bad luck for Doogie. He is such a great guy in the environment as well as being an outstanding prop. We hope he recovers from the surgery quickly and rehabs well.”

No decision on a replacement has been made yet.
