How high can Folau fly?

Try scorer or ballet dancer?

Scotland defeating the Wallabies for the first time on Sydney soil in an international rugby union Test match wasn't the only impressive moment in Saturday's game.

Wallabies fullback Israel Folau leapt to a new high in a spectacular AFL-style pick-up that led to the Aussies scoring their second try for the night, just before half time.

Despite Scotland taking the win 24-19, Wallabies fans are suggesting Folau take a different sporting career path. Basketball.

Alas, Izzy's acrobatics were in vain, as the vistiors fired back in the second half to claim just their second rugby victory in Australia in front of a crowd of more than 30,000.

Now that's a cause for a wee bit o' celebration.
