Brumbies full-back Jesse Mogg will miss the first month of Super Rugby after being ruled out for six months due to shoulder reconstruction.

Brumbies full-back Jesse Mogg has been ruled out for six months due to shoulder surgery, meaning that he will miss the first month of Super Rugby.

This will be his second shoulder reconstruction in thirteen months, with the lay-off a setback to his hopes of making Australia’s World Cup squad.

“It’s frustrating to be injured for a long time, but one of the discussions we had was to miss a couple of games at the start [of Super Rugby] rather than getting three games into the season and then blowing it out,” Mogg told www.smh.com.au.

“Especially leading into the World Cup. I still have ambitions to get back in the [Wallabies] squad. Timing was key and getting surgery now was in the best interest of getting right for Super Rugby.”
