Sydney - Australia backrow forward Ben
McCalman was on 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 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.
Reds' Leroy Houston has been
called up to take his place in the squad, the Australian Rugby Union said.
McCalman will likely be the only forced
change to the Wallabies side for the final Test in Sydney on Saturday, although
coach Michael Cheika is eyeing other potential reshuffles as he bids to avoid a
3-0 series whitewash.
"We'll probably make a couple of changes,"
he said on the ARU website.
"I thought I might make a couple each
game just to have a look at guys who have shown, either through Super Rugby or
through the series, they're vying for spots. We'll sort those out over the next
day or so."
The Wallabies committed a multitude of
handling errors, many in strong attacking positions, as England triumphed 23-7
in the second Test last weekend.
It followed the well-drilled and motivated
Six Nations champions, coached by Australian Eddie Jones, ambushing the
Wallabies 39-28 in the first Test in Brisbane a week earlier.
