THE Western Force career of winger Caleb Brown is over - before it really even started.
He has been released after tearing a hamstring during training 11 days ago on the clubs UK tour.
Initial reports suggested Brown was only likely to miss the rest of the tour, but the injury was more severe than first diagnosed.
It is a bitter blow for the injury-ravaged Brown, whose run of hamstring problems now sees him back home in Brisbane pondering his rugby future.
Brown joined the Force from Queensland on a two-year deal in June, but it is understood there was an injury `get-out' clause written into the contract that allowed the Force to release him if his injury problems re-surfaced.
