PERTH - Wallabies duo Hugh McMeniman and Pat McCabe suffered suspected neck injuries as the Brumbies eased to a 27-14 win over the Western Force in Saturday night's Super Rugby clash in Perth.

McCabe was sent to hospital for scans after damaging his neck in a first-half incident.

The 25-year-old centre was in just his second game back since breaking his neck while playing against the British and Irish Lions last year.

The Brumbies were dealt another blow when David Pocock injured his reconstructed left knee in the 71st minute.

Pocock was assessed on the ground before walking to the bench with only a slight limp.

McMeniman, who missed the second half of last season after undergoing a shoulder reconstruction, was stretchered off in the 36th minute after hurting his neck while making an attempted drive to the tryline.

The Brumbies ran in three first-half tries to notch their first victory of the season.
