“Karma” – Irsrael Folau suffers nightmare international comeback with Tonga

Former Australia star Israel Folau was injured on his Test return as Tonga were thumped 36-0 by Fiji in the Pacific Nations Cup.

A change in World Rugby’s rules last year allowed him to switch allegiance to Tonga.

Folau injured his leg in a collision when chasing a kick and limped off in the 27th minute against Fiji.

He was listed as ‘Isileli Folau’ by Tonga and named on the right wing for the match in Suva.

He had only two ineffectual touches before being replaced.
