Anthony Faingaa back for Reds

Anthony Faingaa: Set for surgery

Anthony Faingaa will play no further rugby this year after it was announced that he would be undergoing reconstructive surgery on his shoulder.

The Reds centre has been hampered by the injury throughout the season and has decided that it is best to take definitive action and spent six months on the sidelines than to continue playing with the injury.

"I've been carrying this shoulder injury throughout the last season and I feel that it is not in the best interests of my teammates at the Reds nor the Wallabies squad to continue to do so," Faingaa wrote on his Facebook page.

"I'm immensely disappointed not to be joining my brother, Saia, at the Wallabies camp on Monday.

"We missed the last tour together and now we are to be split apart again because of my surgery and recovery."
