The powerful prop should return to the field with the national team against Tonga, setting the stage for a return to the highest levels
Strong Reds and Australia’s Taniella Topo are ready to get back in action. Number 3 should land on the green on Friday, in the Australia A match against Tonga in Nukuʻalofa.
The front row had a ruptured Achilles tendon in November 2022. He missed the entire Pacific Super Rugby season but was called up by Eddie Jones to the Wallabies’ extended squad for the Rugby Championship.
His recovery from injury has been swift and there is a very good chance he will be able to make the Australian squad for the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
On Monday, the Australian crew confirmed that the player had been added to the A-Team so he could build up his minutes, rather than immediately return to the big stage.
Meanwhile, props Blake Schoupp, Brumbies rookie who plays left, and Rebels 26-year-old Pone Fa’amausili, right, have been added to the Wallabies line-up. The two could be spot on at 23 against the Pumas next weekend.
