The Brumbies have picked a 26-man touring squad for their three-game tour of South Africa without injured skipper Stephen Hoiles.

Hoiles suffered a medial ligament tear in his left knee during the Brumbies 21-11 win over the Waratahs on Friday night.

Flanker Mitchell Chapman has been named as Hoiles' replacement in the squad.

The rest of the team which defeated the Waratahs has been named in the squad along with additions Shawn Mackay, Alfi Mafi, Gene Fairbanks and Guy Shepherdson.
