Australia Center Horne Out of Tri-Nations With Elbow Fracture

Aug. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Australia center Rob Horne will miss the rest of rugby’s Tri-Nations championship after scans revealed a small fracture in his right elbow.

The 20-year-old, who made his sixth appearance for the Wallabies in a 49-28 defeat to New Zealand in Melbourne two days ago, also has ligament damage, the Australian Rugby Union said in a statement.

“It’s bad luck for Rob, but he’s made an encouraging start to his international career, starting in every Test that we’ve played this year,” Wallabies coach Robbie Deans said in the statement.

Loose forwards Scott Higginbotham and Ben McCalman, and winger Cameron Shepherd have been added to the squad to play New Zealand on Aug. 7 in Christchurch.

The All Blacks lead the championship with 15 points after three straight wins. Australia has four points from two matches, while South Africa has lost all three of its games.
