Flying winger sent home from South African tour to have scans.
Wallaby winger Digby Ioane is returning home from Queensland Reds’ tour of South Africa with a knee injury, team officials said on Monday.
Ioane, who was chosen on Sunday in Australia’s 25-man preliminary squad for next month’s Test series against the British and Irish Lions, will have scans when he arrives in Brisbane, officials said.
“Digby has been ruled out of Saturday’s Super Rugby clash against the Stormers in Cape Town with soft tissue damage to his left knee,” a team statement said.
“While the injury is not considered serious, Digby will return to Australia on Monday to receive scans and further assessment on the injury he sustained in the Reds’ match against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein at the weekend.”
