The 22-year-old Kiwi broke a bone in his left hand against the Brumbies on Saturday, but played through the pain barrier as his side won their Super Rugby clash 17-13.

He'll miss at least the next six weeks, including two Kiwi derbies against the Highlanders and Blues, after undergoing surgery on Sunday.

Marty McKenzie is likely to take Mo'unga's place at No.10.
