Season over for Harris

Mike Harris has played his last game for the Rebels after the Australian side confirmed he will miss this Friday's game against the Reds.

A hamstring injury sees the full-back ruled out of the Brisbane clash.

The 28-year-old, who joins French club Lyon at the end of the season, was substituted in the seventh minute against the Crusaders in Christchurch on Saturday – prematurely ending a frustrating season of injuries for the back.

Rebels lock Luke Jones has recovered from a concussion while second-row partner Lopeti Timani will continue to be monitored for a second week after suffering a head knock against the Stormers in their previous fixture.

Captain Nic Stirzaker and Laurie Weeks both successfully returned from ankle and hamstring injuries, respectively, against the Crusaders.
