Lockyer ruled out of Test match

Fullback Darren Lockyer has been ruled out of the Australian team to play New Zealand in Friday night's rugby league Test at Sydney's Telstra Stadium.

Lockyer was ruled out by medical staff after receiving the results of an MRI scan on an ankle ligament injury.

Sydney Roosters centre Shannon Hegarty, who had been in camp on standby, will now make his Test debut on the wing with Anthony Minichiello moving from wing to fullback.
