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.

By renewing his ARU contract, the 24-year-old McCalman will be eligible for next year's British and Irish Lions tour. "Playing against the Lions is definitely a goal," he said.

Australia's medical team expect McCalman will be available for August's opening match of the inaugural Rugby Championship against Argentina, South Africa, New Zealand and South Africa.
