Australia’s Dane Haylett-Petty says he expects Israel Folau to resume his duties at full-back when the Wallabies host Argentina. Folau has been sidelined due to an ankle injury picked up against New Zealand last month and has since missed another defeat to the All Blacks and a narrow victory against South Africa.
Haylett-Petty has deputised in the number 15 jersey but the full-back is expecting the talented Folau to return to the starting line-up as the Pumas make the trip to the Cbus Super Stadium.
“He was really close last week… and he’s returning to contact slowly this week so I’m expecting he’ll play,” Haylett-Petty said.
“I enjoyed playing at the back but it will be great to have Izzy back, one of the world’s greatest players.”
