Wallabies centre Christian Lealiifano has been named co-captain of the Brumbies even though he's unlikely to play this season as he recovers from a bone marrow transplant.

Lealiifano will share the captaincy with lock Sam Carter, who is set to lead the team on the field.

The Brumbies say Lealiffano is unlikely to play this year but hope he can return to training later in the season.
