Following further assessment and scans yesterday it was discovered the ruptured ligaments in his left knee will require reconstructive surgery.

He will have the surgery sometime in the next 2-3 weeks.

Highlanders Head Coach Jamie Joseph commented "this is really bad luck for Doogie. He is such a great guy in the environment as well as being an outstanding prop.

We hope he recovers from the surgery quickly and rehabs well."

No decision on a replacement has been made yet.
