Ioane out for rest of 2010 after injuring shoulder

7:30 am on 26 July 2010

Australian rugby wing, Digby Ioane, has joined team-mates Wycliff Palu and James Horwill on the sidelines for the rest of the year, following a collision with his brother Jay.

Ioane popped his shoulder, which he dislocated against England last month, when his brother landed on it during a contact session with coach Robbie Deans.

Ioane will meet with his surgeon today, and faces another lengthy rehab from a shoulder reconstruction.

Deans says Ioane is disappointed, after having a chance at starting against the All Blacks this weekend.
