Horwill to have surgery

2012-06-18 08:42

Sydney - Wallabies captain James Horwill is to undergo surgery on his hamstring on Tuesday and could be out of action until next year's Super Rugby series, the Australian Rugby Union said.

The lock, who ruptured his right hamstring playing for the Reds last month, will have the surgery in Sydney after a consultation with specialists on Monday.

While there is some hope that Horwill may recover in time to feature on the Wallabies' tour to Europe in November, it is more likely that he will not be ready to return until next year's Super Rugby competition, team officials said.

In Horwill's absence, flank David Pocock has led the Wallabies to a series win over Wales.
