To face Lions: Bernard Foley

The Waratahs have been handed a boost after Australia's Sevens squad gave the green light for Matt Lucas and Bernard Foley to face the Lions.

The half-back duo were named in Australia's Sevens World Cup warm-up camp ahead of the tournament in Moscow, which frustrated 'Tahs coach and former Leinster boss Michael Cheika.

Foley has been in excellent form for the Super Rugby outfit but in a fillip to the Waratahs' cause, both he and Lucas have been released to play.
