Alex Corbisiero has been called up to the Lions squad as cover for Cian Healy after he injured his ankle against Western Force earlier today and was just this evening cited for biting Force scrum-half, Brett Sheahan.

From The Lions Facebook page:

ALEX CORBISIERO has been called up as cover to the British & Irish Lions Tour to Australia for Cian Healy.

Corbisiero will join the squad as soon as possible from England's tour of Argentina and his arrival date will be confirmed in due course.

British & Irish Lions Head Coach Warren Gatland said: "Cian has had an X-ray and, while his left ankle is not broken, he will be assessed further when we get to Brisbane. In the meantime we need to get Alex over here as soon as possible and I am thankful to Stuart Lancaster for letting him go so quickly."
