Folau back with a bang

Australia full-back Israel Folau said he wasn't concerned with his recent try drought after he picked up a brace against Fiji on Saturday.

Folau went over twice in Melbourne, as did wing Henry Speight, with Stephen Moore grabbing their other try as they ran out 37-14 winners.

After the match the star was asked whether he was worried about the fact he had not scored in 11 internationals, something he played down.

"No, not at all," he told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"I definitely didn't think about that coming into the game. I really wanted to come out and enjoy myself. I was just satisfied trying to get my hands on the ball and build on top of that.

"Even before I came into camp with the Wallabies I was really just trying to go out there and have fun."

Wallabies head coach Michael Cheika meanwhile was impressed with his full-back, adding: "Even just the last few games of this season for the Waratahs and now into this match today, he looked very dangerous," he said. "We've probably got to get the ball to him a little bit more. I was very happy with his performance."
