Watch: Folau laughs at Daly

Watch: Israel Folau hits dream line, laughs at England fullback Daly before scoring

In the absence of David Pocock, fullback Israel Folau proved he is one of the few world-class players in the Wallabies when he exploded through the English defence to score shortly before halftime.

The Waratahs fullback hit an expertly timed flat line outside the pod of forwards to knife through against the grain, similar to the damage he caused in the second half performance against Argentina in Salta.

He veered past feeble tackles from halfback Ben Youngs and flyhalf Owen Farrell before running rings around England fullback Daly, turning to laugh at the 15 as he put his head down in dispair.

The under-fire fullback scored two tries in the 37-18 loss, after being in serious doubt for the clash with a mid-week virus.
