Sydney - Wallabies hooker Adam Freier has been ruled out for the remainder of the Super 14 season after he tore his bicep while playing for the Waratahs on Friday.

Freier was forced off in the second half of the Waratahs' 21-11 loss to the Brumbies on Friday and scans showed he would require surgery, the Waratahs said on Sunday.

"It's a real blow," coach Chris Hickey said in a statement. "Adam has been sharp for us all year and as one of the senior members of the squad he does a lot more work off the field that a lot of people don't see."

Freier is to undergo surgery later this week and expected to be out for rugby up to four months.
