Brumbies scrum-half Tomás Cubelli will miss the start of the Super Rugby season after it was revealed that he has ruptured his patellar tendon.
The Canberra-based outfit issued a press statement on their official website on Monday which confirmed the news.
"Following the pre-season trial match with the Waratahs at Glen Willow Regional Sports Stadium on Saturday the Brumbies are disappointed to learn that scrum-half Tomás Cubelli has ruptured his patellar tendon," the statement read.
"Cubelli suffered an injury to his knee in the 37th minute and the injury was confirmed by a specialist in Sydney this morning.
"Cubelli will undergo surgery tomorrow and will begin his rehabilitation with the Brumbies thereafter. The Argentinean international will miss the start of the Super Rugby season as he begins his recovery."
