Huxley taken to hospital as a precaution

Brumbies and Australia test fullback Julian Huxley was taken to hospital for scans on his neck following a third-minute tackle.

The match was held up for about six minutes as medical staff attended to Huxley, who was knocked down while attempting a front-on tackle on Reds lock James Horwill.

The Wallaby fullback convulsed on the ground as opponents Chris Latham and Morgan Turinui rushed to assist him. Medical staff worked to place Huxley on a medicab before he was slowly wheeled from the ground with his neck in a brace.

A Brumbies spokesman said Huxley suffered a head injury and was taken by ambulance to hospital for precautionary scans on his neck.

There was no word on his condition late Saturday.

Huxley’s loss seemed to inspire the Brumbies, who ensured Queensland remained without a win in Canberra in eight attempts.


A positive sign that Huxley will be ok is that he was moving his arms as he was carried off the field.
