Wing called up for Kangaroos
Sydney Roosters utility Craig Wing has been called up for the Kangaroos squad after captain Darren Lockyer and Nathan Hindmarsh were ruled out of the Tri Nations tour in a double injury blow.
Lockyer has been diagnosed with a broken bone in his foot suffered at training in Paris yesterday and will be out of action for two to three months.
Hindmarsh has also re-injured the knee which kept him out of the NRL finals during the same training session and will not be risked on tour. The ARL today confirmed Newcastle hooker Danny Buderus will captain the side in Lockyer's absence.
