    Cape Town - The Reds will be without star Wallaby wing Digby Ioane when they tackle the Stormers in their Super Rugby clash at Newlands on Saturday.

    Kick-off is at 17:05.

    Ioane injured his knee during the Reds' 27-13 loss to the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

    He has been flown back to Brisbane, where he will undergo medical scans. The extent of the damage is not yet known, but he is expected to be back in action before the end of the tournament.

    Ioane was included in Robbie Deans' 25-man Australia squad to play the British and Irish Lions.

    Ioane will leave the Reds later this year after signing a two-year contract with French Top 14 side Stade Francais in a deal worth a reported $2.5 million.
