Izzy Will Be A Wallaby “If Selectors Aren’t Blind” Says Tuqiri

by Brendan Bradford – Dual code legend Lote Tuqiri has added his voice to the chorus of people demanding to see Israel Folau in a Wallabies jersey this June. Tuqiri told Rugby News he has no doubt about Folau’s ability to make the step up from Super Rugby to Test Match football against the Lions next month. “He’s definitely got the skill and talent,” the 67-Test veteran said. “He’s going great guns at 15 and he’d be a good winger as well, it’s just a matter of how the coaching staff wants to use him. They’re probably the two positions he’ll fit quite well, but he’ll be really good on the bench if they want to go that way because he’s very versatile in the 15, 14, 11 area. He can cover all three bases, so there’s plenty of scope for him to pull on the gold jersey.” [caption id="attachment_3245" align="alignright" widt
