The Crusaders' already-thin playmaking stocks have been further reduced by a serious hand injury to first-five Richie Mo'unga.

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.
