Waratahs lose Israel Folau%]
Israel Folau has been cleared to join his New South Wales Waratahs team-mates in South Africa, and the fullback hopes to fly out of Sydney on Saturday.
Folau was ruled out of the trip to play the Sharks in Durban this weekend after bruising his throat during the Waratahs' 32-8 win against Melbourne Rebels at Allianz Stadium in Sydney last weekend, but now he has been cleared to fly after seeing specialists again on Thursday.
He hopes to join his team-mates in Durban before travelling with the squad to Cape Town for the match against the Stormers a week on Saturday.
