Folau and Rugby Australia immediately launched an appeal against the ban.
Many were angered at the decision that saw Folau face a World Rugby disciplinary hearing after he was cited for an early aerial challenge with Peter O’Mahony.
“I’d be stunned if he’s not available,” he said. “Personally, I think it’s an interesting decision to even send him there [to a disciplinary].
“They’ve made that call, so he’ll go and defend himself. You probably saw it, personally I think if you’re in the air and you’re three foot off the ground, four feet off the ground, he’s quite high off the ground.
“I would think they would look at their one-man lifting technique. I know we do a lot of it but I’d be surprised. It’d be a bit of a nanny state if they pull him.”
