Injured: Kurtley Beale

Wallaby fly-half Kurtley Beale has been ruled out of Super Rugby for up to a month with a fractured hand, the Rebels have announced.

Rebels fly-half Kurtley Beale has been ruled out of Super Rugby action for up to a month with a fractured hand.

Beale is expected to undergo surgery after scans revealed a fracture to his left hand that will keep him out for up to four weeks, a spokesman said.

Beale was already playing in the Super Rugby with an injured left shoulder, which is likely to require surgery at the end of the domestic season, which includes a three-Test series against the touring British and Irish Lions.

He suffered the latest injury in the Rebels' losing bonus-point defeat to Waratahs on Friday.
