Koroibete to miss Spring Tour

Fiji-born winger Marika Koroibete will miss the Wallabies' entire northern hemisphere spring tour after opting to stay in Australia following the birth of his third child.

Coach Dave Rennie said the 29-year-old star back needed precious family time before linking with Japan's Panasonic Wild Knights next season on a lucrative multi-year contract.

It's uncertain when - or if - the 2019 John Eales Medallist will play for the Wallabies again.

The Namosi native's 42 Test caps are not enough to make him eligible for selection from overseas under the Giteau Law, but Rugby Australia has loosened that retriction in recent times.
