The Wallabies are sweating over the availability of Israel Folau and Bernard Foley ahead of Saturday’s Test against England at Twickenham.
Folau, Foley and at least eight other players and staff members are struggling with an illness believed to have begun to spread in the Wallabies camp late last week.
‘Israel had a bit of stuff floating through and then Bernard and a few of the other boys just missed out training yesterday,’ defence coach Nathan Grey said.
‘Yeah, it’s not ideal, but it’s part of footy, so we just got to get on with it. No one’s going to die. The guys who are ready to go, the doc will greenlight them.’
Bug going through Wallabies camp in London. Folau apparently been sick since last Friday but played through.
