Horne out of tri-nations with elbow injury

india Updated: Aug 01, 2010 14:26 IST

Australia center Rob Horne has been ruled out of the remainder of the Tri-Nations rugby tournament after scans revealed a small fracture in his right elbow. The 20-year-old Horne appeared in his sixth test for Australia on Saturday, a 49-28 loss to New Zealand.

Horne will require surgery for the injury, which also includes ligament damage, and is expected to be sidelined for the remainder of the season, the Wallabies said on Sunday.

Horne's place in the 24-man Australia squad going to Christchurch for Saturday's match against the All Blacks has been taken by Queensland Reds loose forward Scott Higginbotham.
