    Wallabies winger Marika Koroibete will miss Australia's entire northern-hemisphere tour after opting to stay home following the birth of his third child

    Wallabies winger Marika Koroibete will miss Australia's entire northern-hemisphere tour after opting to stay home following the birth of his third child


    With Koroibete bound for Japan's Panasonic Wild Knights next season, his absence means he's played his last match of the year for Australia - and possibly longer.

    Koroibete will need the country's eligibility laws - the so-called Giteau Law - to remain in place if he is to be picked for the Wallabies while in Japan, as he is under the cap threshold with only 42 test appearances.
