The Waratahs received a timely boost ahead of their two-match tour of South Africa, with star back Israel Folau cleared to join them.

Folau stayed behind in Sydney, to see specialist - after suffering a throat injury in last Friday's win over the Melbourne Rebels.

Although he won't feature this week, when the Waratahs face the Sharks in Durban on Saturday, he could play against the Stormers in Cape Town next week.

He is hoping to fly out from Sydney to the Republic on Saturday.

Due to swelling in the throat from a blow he received during the Waratahs 32-8 win over the Rebels, Folau was unable to travel with the NSW team last Saturday.

However, in Thursday's medical check, he was given the all clear.
