Turinui blow for Reds

The Queensland Reds have been hit by the news that former Wallabies vice-captain Morgan Turinui has been ruled out of the rest of the Super 14 with a shoulder injury.

Turinui will undergo shoulder reconstruction in the coming days after failing to overcome a lingering problem with the joint. The 27-year-old had scans earlier this week after being unable play either of the Reds’ two matches in South Africa.

The loss of the Red’s most experienced backline player puts added pressure on Digby Ioane who recently made the move to outside centre against the Stormers last week in Cape Town.

This thread will be updated throughout the day.
