The Reds have been dealt a blow with the news scrum-half Nick Frisby will be out for six weeks after suffering a broken jaw.

The 21-year-old sustained the injury early in the second half of Saturday’s 30-20 defeat to Western Force – his side’s fifth straight game against their Perth rivals without victory.

It was initially hoped he could play a part in the Reds’ final Super Rugby clash of the season against the Waratahs on Saturday but scans have subsequently revealed the fracture which will require surgery.

Reds head coach Richard Graham said: “It is disappointing to lose Pickle (Nick Frisby). He has played some good rugby for us recently and it would have been beneficial to continue his partnership with Benny Lucas this weekend.

“Following surgery tonight (Monday) he’ll be out for at approximately six weeks.”

Frisby’s injury adds to a long list of players currently unavailable for the Reds, including Quade Cooper, Blake Enever, Anthony Fainga’a, Chris Feauai-Sautia and Will Genia.
