Reds and Australian Sevens wing Luke Morahan has been called into the Wallabies squad ahead of the British and Irish Lions Test series.

He has been added to the Wallabies squad after Brumbies wing Joe Tomane was ruled out of the opening Test with a toe injury.

The 23-year-old who, like Morahan, played the only Test of his career to date against Scotland last year; sustained the injury at training on the Sunshine Coast yesterday.

An MRI scan subsequently revealed a small toe fracture in his left foot.

Tomane, who will remain part of the squad, is expected to recover in time to be available to play some part in the remainder of the Test series, which opens when Australia takes on the British and Irish Lions at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on June 22.

Morahan, who scored a try for the Reds against the tourists last Saturday, and has since been in camp on the Gold Coast with the Australian Sevens team.
