McCalman extends Aussie stay
Sydney - Wallabies backrower Ben McCalman has re-signed with the Australian Rugby Union and Super Rugby side Force for another year.
McCalman, who will sit out Saturday's second Test against Wales with a left shoulder injury, made his debut for Australia in 2010 and has represented the Wallabies in 21 matches.
