Folau out for at least three months: ARU

Wallabies fullback Israel Folau will undergo ankle surgery, ruling him out of rugby for a minimum of three months.

The Australian Rugby Union released a statement on Thursday confirming the dual international would go under the knife.

Folau will have to pull out of a lucrative upcoming stint in Japanese rugby and is in danger of missing the NSW Waratahs’ Super Rugby opener against Queensland on February 27.
