Rugby union – Wallaby McCalman out six weeks after shoulder break

Rugby union - Wallaby McCalman out six weeks after shoulder break– Australia back-row forward Ben McCalman was Tuesday ruled out of the third and final Test against England with a shoulder injury that will sideline him for up to six weeks. The Western Force No. 8 came off the bench in the Wallabies’ second Test defeat in Melbourne Saturday and broke his scapula (shoulder blade) soon after, but continued playing. Queensland Reds’ Leroy Houston has been called up to take his place in the squad, the Australian Rugby Union said.
