Reds lose Ioane for Stormers clash

The Stormers will be thanking their lucky stars that one of the danger men in world rugby has been ruled out of Rugby Injurytheir match at Newlands this weekend.

Reds winger Digby Ioane was sent back to Brisbane this week after sustaining a knee injury during their loss to the Cheetahs on Saturday. The speedster was one of the few bright sparks in the team’s 27-13 defeat.

Ioane, who has been selected for the Wallabies preliminary squad to face the British and Irish Lions next month will undergo scans on the injury later this week.

“Digby has been ruled out of Saturday’s Super Rugby clash against the Stormers in Cape Town with soft tissue damage to his left knee, While the injury is not considered serious, Digby will return to Australia on Monday to receive scans and further assessment on the injury he sustained in the Reds’ match against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein at the weekend.” a team statement said.
