Melbourne winger Dom Shipperley has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2016 Super Rugby season with a knee injury.

Shipperley injured his knee in the Rebels' 25-point loss to the Hurricanes at AAMI Park on Friday night, where he scored the opening try of the match.

"We're shattered for Dom, he's been a consistent performer during the first half of the year for the Rebels, but unfortunately a contact injury has prematurely ended his Super Rugby season," Rebels general manager Baden Stephenson said.
