Australia rugby union international Julian Huxley has been diagnosed with a brain tumour.

The tumour, believed to be benign, was discovered following a brain scan taken after he was concussed during an ACT Brumbies game on Saturday.

"It was a huge shock when the doctor told me I have a tumour," said the versatile back, 28, who was carried off the pitch with his neck in a brace.

"It's been with me for some time and I've never felt any sort of illness."
