The career of Australia’s oldest Super Rugby player appears to be over after Brumbies hooker Josh Mann-Rea suffered a serious knee injury.
Mann-Rea left the field during the Brumbies’ 19-17 win over Stormers at the weekend with the 38-year-old suspected to have torn his anterior cruciate ligament.
The injury typically requires nine months of rehabilitation.
The two-Test Wallaby is off-contract at the end of the season.
Despite being largely used as reserve throughout his career, Mann-Rea made his international debut against South Africa in 2014, but only played one more Test.
