INJURY UPDATE: Argentine Pumas scrumhalf Tomas Cubelli will miss the early months of the Brumbies' Super Rugby season with a knee injury, the team said on Monday.

Cubelli, 27, in his second season with the Brumbies, ruptured his patellar tendon in a pre-season trial match against the Waratahs on Saturday.
 
The injury was confirmed by a specialist and he will undergo surgery on Tuesday before beginning a period of rehabilitation.
 
"It was not the ideal start. To the operating room! Patellar tendon rupture. Things that happen in the sport," Cubelli said in a translated Instagram post on Monday.
 
Medical officials said the type of injury generally required a minimum of three months before a return to normal activities.
 
Cubelli played 15 games for the Brumbies in his first Super Rugby season last year and has made 58 appearances for the Pumas.
