Queensland Reds winger Luke Morahan has been called into the Australia squad for the forthcoming British & Irish Lions series.
Morahan produced a superb display against the Lions last weekend including try-saving tackles on Alex Cuthbert and Owen Farrell as well as an outstanding individual score. His heroics in Brisbane have been rewarded with a return to the international ranks having won his one and only cap against Scotland last year.
The 23-year-old has been drafted into coach Robbie Deans' squad 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 yesterday 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 tomorrow.
