The right hamstring, which Horwill ruptured during last month’s Investec Super Rugby match between the Queensland Reds and the Brumbies, has not improved to the extent hoped by non surgical rehabilitation methods.
Although surgery is now the action, it is not expected to significantly alter the timeline for Horwill’s return to playing duties. While there is still some hope that Horwill may recover in time to feature on the Qantas Wallabies Spring Tour in November, it is more likely that he will not be ready to return until next year’s Super Rugby competition.
The Qantas Wallabies move from Melbourne to Sydney this afternoon in preparation for Saturday’s sold out third Test of the Wales Tour at Allianz Stadium.
