    Brumbies leave for SA, Argentina tour

    2017-05-16 10:34

    Cape Town - Brumbies head coach Stephen Larkham has announced a 27-man squad for their trip to tour to South Africa and Argentina.

    Wallabies prop Scott Sio will miss at least another fortnight with a knee injury after he was left out of the squad.

    Sio hurt his knee against the Hurricanes on April 21 and has been unable to shake off the problem, with no set timeline on his return.

    The 25-year-old is missing from the Brumbies' squad for the next two games against the Kings and Jaguares.

    Young wing James Dargaville is another notable absentee, as the team prepares for their round-the-world venture.

    The Brumbies take on the Kings in Port Elizabeth on Saturday before heading to Buenos Aires where they face the Jaguares on Saturday, May 27.

    Kick-off on Saturday is at 19:30.

    Brumbies squad:
