Tahs to unleash league star

Israel Folau is set to run out for the Waratahs when they face the Rebels this weekend.

There’s been plenty of hype surrounding Folau, who has played rugby league and AFL at the highest levels. This will be his third code, and he’s been training at fullback and wing.

Ollie Atkins, Cam Crawford, Luke Holmes, Matt Lucas and Ben Volavola are also set to make their debuts for the Tahs.

Brendan McKibbin will skipper the team.
