Berrick Barnes Waratahs v Cheetahs round 5 2013

Ruled out: Berrick Barnes

Waratahs centre Berrick Barnes has been ruled out for up to six weeks after having surgery to fix a dislocated thumb, it was confirmed on Tuesday.

Barnes, who made his 2013 Super Rugby debut against the Cheetahs in Sydney last weekend, left the field early in the first-half clutching his thumb.

The news is a further blow to head coach Michael Cheika as he is likely to once again be without Tatafu Polota-Nau and Wycliff Palu this Sunday.
