Cape Town - The Wallabies face a problem at outside centre for the Rugby Championship with reports Tevita Kuridrani will miss the next three months due to a pectoral injury.

According to the Stuff website, the 58-Test veteran Kuridrani tore the muscle in the Brumbies' win over the Waratahs last weekend, their final match of the Super Rugby season.

It comes after Wallabies coach Michael Cheika's recent first-choice outside centre Samu Kerevi was also sidelined for the duration of Rugby Championship with a bicep injury.

Kuridrani, 27, will be unavailable when Australia face the All Blacks in the first Bledisloe Cup Test in Sydney on August 18. The second Trans-Tasman Test takes place at Eden Park in Auckland a week later.

Kuridrani is also likely to miss the Wallabies' clashes against Argentina and South Africa, but, given the prognosis, may be fit for the third and final Bledisloe Cup Test in Yokohama, Japan, on October 27.
