Brumby ruled out

Saturday, December 14, 2013

MELBOURNE - The Brumbies will be without Christian Lealiifano as they kick off their 2014 Super Rugby season with the Wallabies centre expected to be sidelined for three months following ankle surgery this week.

Lealiifano isn't expected to be available until at least March after undergoing surgery on Wednesday in Canberra.

The Brumbies playmaker had some bone, scar tissue and a plate removed that had been inserted when he dislocated his right ankle last year.

The injury affected the goal-kicking star's training during the Wallabies' recent European tour.
