Israel Folau could feature for the Waratahs next weekend when they take on the Stormers in Cape Town, after being cleared to fly.
Folau, who has scored eight tries in four games this season, suffered a throat injury in last week's win over the Rebels.
The nature of the injury prevented him from flying out with the Waratahs squad earlier this week, forcing him to miss Saturday's match in Durban against the Sharks.
However Folau is now expected to fly out of Sydney this weekend and link up with the squad before their match at Newlands.
Jonno Lance is set to fill in for the Wallaby against league leaders the Sharks this weekend.
