The 21-year-old will require surgery on a broken jaw sustained against the Western Force.
Queensland Reds scrum-half Nick Frisby will miss his team’s final match of the Super Rugby season after suffering a broken jaw in the Reds’ loss to the Western Force on the weekend.
Frisby will be out of action for six weeks after being hit in the jaw early during the second half during Saturday’s match in Perth.
The Reds had initially hoped the 21-year-old would be available for the clash against the Waratahs this weekend, but scans revealed the fracture would require surgery.
“It is disappointing to lose Pickle (Nick Frisby),” he said.
“He has played some good Rugby for us recently and it would have been beneficial to continue his partnership with Benny Lucas this weekend.
“Following surgery tonight he’ll be out for at approximately six weeks.”
Frisby’s injury adds to a growing list of Reds players unavailable for selection along with Quade Cooper (shoulder/hip), Blake Enever (bicep), Anthony Fainga’a (calf), Chris Feauai-Sautia (shoulder), Will Genia (ankle), Liam Gill (Australian Sevens duties), Eddie Quirk (knee), Dom Shipperley (ankle) and Aidan Toua (pectoral).
