Folau thanks Fijian for tries
November 9, 2014 10:55 pm
Australia rugby fullback Israel Folau has thanked Fijian centre Tevita Kuridrani for helping him end his try-scoring drought.
Folau scored twice in the Wallabies’ nail-bitting 33-28 win over Wales, the first time he had crossed the stripe in two months spanning the past four Tests.
Folau says the emergence of Kuridrani has eased the pressure.
He says with Kuridrani in such great form that takes a little bit of pressure off him.
Folau adds they have a great depth and with the likes of Henry Speight yet to come back from injury, it is great that everyone’s challenging each other for spots.
