Israel Folau confirms positions switch for the Wallabies moving forward
Israel Folau is intent on delivering for the Wallabies in his first-time Test start in the centres, now that he’s settled his future.
“So it’s not too much of a change. The number on the back of the jersey is going to be the difference.”
Folau’s biggest challenge will likely come in defence, not that he’s worried at all.
“Even though I haven’t spent that much time defending there, I’m feeling comfortable to do that,” he said.
“It’s something that you kind of embrace as a professional athlete.
“I’m confident in having to defend there up front. It’s all about the connections with guys inside and outside of you.
“So, if we’re on the same page there, I’m very comfortable in reading what’s in front of me and making the tackle.”
