British & Irish Lions call up Ireland winger Zebo

The British & Irish Lions have called up Ireland and Munster winger Simon Zebo as cover for his fellow Ireland winger Tommy Bowe.

Zebo will fly from Houston, Texas on Sunday evening and arrive in Sydney on Tuesday morning, meeting up with the squad in Newcastle ahead of the game against Combined Country.

Bowe underwent surgery this morning to stabilise a bone fracture in his hand and his condition will be assessed over the next few days.

It is understood that Bowe could miraculously still play a part in the Tests as he could be available to play again in just over two weeks.
