Ben McCalman (born 18 March 1988 in Dubbo, New South Wales) is an Australian rugby union footballer. He currently plays for the Western Force in the international Super Rugby competition, and Australia.[2]

McCalman attended the Kinross Wolaroi School in Orange. In 2005 and 2006 he made the Australian Schools selection. McCalman then furthered his education at Sydney University. He made his Western Force and Wallabies debuts in 2010 and was a part of the Australian 2011 Rugby World Cup campaign.
