Wilson’s Super Rugby season ends with injury

Queensland Reds will travel to Fiji without start Number 8 Harry Wilson whose Super Rugby Pacific season is over after he underwent surgery on his broken right arm.

The 24-year-old, who was surging back into the Wallabies frame after a series of impressive outings, is expected to be sidelined for eight weeks.

The Reds have three regular rounds of competition remaining, followed by three weeks of finals, meaning Wilson is unlikely to be available even if the team makes the season finale.

In a statement, the Reds said Wilson had “successfully undergone surgery on the broken right arm he sustained against the Melbourne Rebels last Friday night at Suncorp Stadium.”

“Wilson had surgery on Saturday and it is estimated the recovery period will be eight weeks,” the statement said.

The loss of the in-form No.8 is a blow for the hopes of Les Kiss’s side going all the way to the title, with Wilson linking with fellow back-rowers Fraser McReight and Liam Wright to form one of Super Rugby Pacific’s greatest weapons.

The Reds will face Fijian Drua at the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva at 2.05pm on Saturday.
