Injured Farrell pulls out of England lineup against Australia

Injured Farrell pulls out of England lineup against Australia

Andy Farrell has pulled out of England's lineup for Saturday's Rugby World Cup quarterfinal against Australia with a calf muscle injury.
The rugby league convert had been recalled to play at inside center against the Wallabies but England announced on Thursday his right calf suffered a reaction after training on Wednesday.
Farrell had a clinical review and MRI scan on Thursday which confirmed a strain and the Saracens center is now getting treatment.
England coach Brian Ashton will not announce who replaces Farrell until Friday's news conference. The likely replacement is Olly Barkley, who was left out of the starting lineup to make way for Farrell's return.
