Israel Folau scores for Australia

Israel Folau is on track to break one of the most‑prestigious records in international rugby.

Folau heads into Sunday's Rugby Championship in sight of the world record for most Test tries in a calendar year.

After scoring his 11th Test try of 2017 in the Wallabies' 27‑27 draw last Saturday with South Africa, Folau beat Lote Tuqiri's Australian record set 13 years ago.

Folau needs six five‑pointers in Australia's last six internationals of the year to equal the tallies of Japanese flyer Daisuke Ohata (2002) and legendary All Blacks winger Joe Rokocoko (2003).

The All Blacks meet South Africa 3.05am Sunday while Argentina meet Australia at 10.40am Sunday.
