Hegarty loses race against time

North Queensland winger Matt Sing will play in the second Ashes rugby league Test at Hull's KC Stadium after Shannon Hegarty lost his race against time to be fit for the match.

Hegarty was ruled out with the ankle injury he picked up in Australia's 22-18 win over Great Britain in the opening Test at Wigan's JJB Stadium last weekend.

"He ran this morning and it was no good," Anderson said.

"I don't think there's a lot of difference between Hegarty and Sing. He (Sing) brings the same things Shannon does.

"He's a good dummy-half runner and he's dangerous with the ball in his hands. Matty has trained there most of the week."

Sing has played six Tests for Australia and was involved in the two games against New Zealand this year.

There was some good news for the Kangaroos with halfback Brett Kimmorley (thigh) training for the first time this week.

Kimmorley is certain to play on Sunday morning (AEST) as Australia looks to wrap up the Ashes series with victory over the Lions.

The Cronulla No.7 ran feely as the Kangaroos enjoyed a light session at South Leeds Stadium in miserable conditions.

The groundsman took down the goalposts at one end of the field amid forecasts of strong winds in the north of England while light rain fell throughout the session.
