Wallabies coach Michael Cheika is confident that Tevita Kuridrani will be fit for Australia’s Rugby World Cup opener against Fiji.
Kuridrani and rookie Jordan Petaia trained separately to the main group yesterday, both working their way back from hamstring injuries.
Petaia went back to Australia early from the Wallabies’ pre-tournament camp in Noumea while Kuridrani tweaked his hamstring in the lead-in to last weekend’s Samoa Test.
Cheika says Kuridrani would likely be back in the mix for Australia’s opener against Fiji.
