The ACT Brumbies' first win of the Super Rugby season may have come at a cost with inside centre Pat McCabe taken to hospital in a neck brace in Perth on Saturday night.

While the Brumbies secured their first four points of the 2014 campaign with a 27-14 victory, they had two injury scares with McCabe and David Pocock both unable to finish the game.

The doctor examined McCabe's neck out on the field just before half-time and he didn't return for the second half.
