Biola Dawa will miss the Super W season after suffering a badly broken leg.
Dawa dislocated her ankle and fractured her leg preparing for the ACT Brumbies season and the former CSU speedster will be sidelined for an extended period.
The Brumbies play their first game against RugbyWA at Canberra Stadium on Saturday as part of a double header with the Super Rugby side.
The teams will be named on Thursday.
However Ag College's Harriet Elleman and former Southern Inland players Claudia Obst and Jane Garraway are expected to be named in the team.
Former Wagga schoolgirl Clare Harpley has also been brought into the squad.
Harpley was part of the team who trialled in hot conditions in Wagga earlier this month.
