Hurricanes prop Jeffery Toomaga-Allen has been ruled out for the rest of the season following a knee injury during his team's loss to Chiefs a fortnight ago.

Toomaga-Allen, who had been named in the first All Blacks wider training group, only to have to withdraw after the injury, has a torn MCL, but surgery is not required. He is expected to be out for at least eight weeks.

The Hurricanes, all but out of the play-offs in ninth place, face the third-placed Brumbies in Canberra on Friday.
