Queensland Reds winger Luke Morahan has been called into the Australia squad for the Lions series.

Morahan impressed when playing for the Reds against the tourists at the weekend, scoring a wonderful first-half try, and comes in 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.

He has made just one Test appearance for the green and gold, against Scotland last year.
