Wallabies call-up for Morahan

Queensland Reds winger Luke Morahan has been called into the Australia squad for the Lions series.

Morahan impressed when playing for the Reds against the tourists at the weekend, scoring a wonderful first-half try, and comes in as a replacement for Brumbies winger Joe Tomane.

Tomane has been ruled out of the first Test with a fractured toe sustained in training on the Sunshine Coast on Monday but is expected to be fit to play a part later in the series.

Morahan has been with the Australia Sevens team and will link-up with the Wallabies squad on Wednesday.

He has made just one Test appearance for the green and gold, against Scotland last year.
